This Week in the War on Voting

In Pennsylvania advocacy organizations including Demos, Project Vote and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, are suing to make the state comply with the National Voter Registration Act, or Motor-Voter. According to plaintiffs, "the majority of clients seeking public assistance services in Pennsylvania are simply not being offered voter registration opportunities, and some public assistance agencies do not even have the voter registration forms available on request." This information and assistance is required by the NVRA.
