The American democratic experiment depends on our faith that our vote counts. Any challenge to that belief is an attack on our democracy, and Sean believes that we must be vigilant to protect against those who would seek to disenfranchise American citizens or compromise the integrity of our electoral system.
In Congress, Sean:
- Cosponsored H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which would create national automatic voter registration, end partisan gerrymandering, and beef up election security among other reforms to enhance and safeguard our democracy.
- Cosponsored the Voting Right Enhancement Act to update the Voting Rights Act’s formula to determine which states have shown a pattern of voting rights violations.
- Cosponsored John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would that would restore and strengthen parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Sean is also a strong advocate for vote-by-mail, or as he likes to call it, voting at home. Voting at home is a safe and secure way to ensure that everyone can exercise their right to vote during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Democracy should not be a partisan issue. We all have a stake in promoting free and fair elections, and Sean is committed to standing up for everyone’s right to vote.
