Judge Rules all Eligible Voters Allowed to Vote By Mail during the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging our country’s future not just by endangering so many lives but also by presenting health threats to at-risk populations during the upcoming elections. States and counties are working to protect those people and their voting rights!
Pursuant to the June 4, 2020 Order of the Davidson County Chancery Court, if you are a registered voter and do not wish to vote in-person due to the COVID-19 situation, you are eligible to request an absentee ballot by mail. You also have the option to vote in-person during early voting or on Election Day. Read the news release: https://wpln.org/post/nashville-judge-rules-state-should-lift-absentee-voting-restrictions/

Mandated by the Constitution, the Census is conducted every 10 years and is used to apportion government resources and representation based on population counts. It directly affects how much money is available to your community.
With Nashville’s explosive growth it is especially important that everyone makes sure they are counted, so we can get the resources we need.

In 2013 the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act of 1965 enabling voter suppression through unreasonable voter ID laws, voter registration restrictions, voter purges, large-scale felony disenfranchisement, and gerrymandering of voting districts
Congress recently passed the Voting Rights Advancement Act aimed at restoring the protections of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Tell your Senators to support the Voting Rights Advancement Act and do their duty to protect our democracy!
