Public Citizen has long fought hard to ensure that all Americans have the right to vote, and to have their votes counted. We have worked on the Help America Vote Act, and other similar legislation. Currently, we are fighting to give DC citizens the representation in Congress that they deserve. For information about our previous campaigns, please see our archives.
The Senate has passed the DC Voting Rights Act and the House of Representatives will likely take it up soon. However, an amendment that would gut DC’s local gun control laws was also passed and attached to the bill. We must act quickly to stop this dangerous and unnecessary gun-slinging measure from becoming law. Two other letters have been sent demanding that Congress respect DC's right to pass their own local gun laws. Take action now!
National Popular Vote
At least 70% of Americans support moving a system of electing the president using the national popular vote. Public Citizen supports the National Popular Vote initiative to make that goal a reality. To get the latest news or to take action in your state, visit the National Popular Vote website here.
