Fighting for Voting Rights in the Courts
Project Vote is one of the country’s leading nonpartisan voter registration and voter education organizations. Yet our work is made meaningless if state laws, rules, and procedures do not afford low-income and minority Americans an equal opportunity to participate in the democratic process.
Over the past ten years Project Vote has developed an expert, in-house legal team, which works to uncover barriers to political participation at the state and local level that require legal action.
Working frequently with other civic rights organizations and
pro bono counsel, Project Vote brings suits against practices that violate state and federal laws (including HAVA and NVRA) to disenfranchise or intimidate voters, improperly remove or purge eligible voters from the rolls, or unfairly restrict the efforts of voter participation organizations to bring new citizens into the electorate.
