Voting Rights Act would ensure democracy


Donald Trump looked up to Adolf Hitler and admires a dictator, Vladimir Putin. They are men who represent totalitarian regimes.
Using his version of Hitler’s Big Lie, Trump claimed the election was stolen despite its being declared the safest election in history. Let us remember that Germany had a democracy before Hitler changed the laws, therefore allowing all he did to become legal.
We are in the same danger if we allow ourselves to permit our elections to reflect the will of partisan senators, representatives and state legislators and not the will of the people.

We need to pass the Voting Rights Act and ensure our democracy.
