This week marks the 47th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, which outlawed discrimination in voting and has been instrumental in ensuring that citizens’ rights are protected from nefarious election laws.

Especially impacted are the elderly, people with disabilities, low-income voters and young people.
