Sample letter to your senators on the For the People Act
Because voting is fundamental to our democracy, it is vital that every eligible citizen who wants to vote be able to in a safe and convenient way. It also is vital that our elections are secure and accurate.
The For the People Act accomplishes this while preventing some states from diluting the right to vote.
As your constituent, I urge you to support the For the People Act.
This bill is being blocked by a filibuster
This bill has received the support of one-half of the Senate, yet it cannot even be debated and voted on as Senate Republicans are blocking it with a filibuster.
There are two possible actions you can take...
If your senator is one of those who blocked the bill (every Republican), write to them asking them to allow it to be voted on by the full Senate.
If your senator already supports the For the People Act (every Democrat and independent), write to them asking them to consider modifying (or eliminating) the filibuster process so that this bill can receive a vote.
