The US House passed the For the People Act on March 3 and it now goes to the Senate. The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa calls upon our senators to support this transformative bill. By voting in favor of the For the People Act, Senator Inhofe and Senator Lankford show their support of a strengthened democracy that works for all.
The For the People Act, also known as HR1 and S1, includes language to restore the Voting Rights Act, provide online voter registration, improve campaign finance transparency, end gerrymandering, and strengthen the Federal Election Commission’s power to investigate alleged campaign finance violations.
This legislation enshrines into law what all Americans know: that everyone deserves a voice in our democracy. The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa strongly supports the For the People Act.
President, League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Tulsa
