Countering voter suppression
The right to vote is fundamental to democracy, and the ACLU of Alabama believes that registering and voting should be as easy as possible. We provide information online and in person to empower voters and fight against voter suppression through public education.
Voting rights are also under attack from voter suppression laws, such as Alabama's voter ID law. This law leads to significant burdens for eligible voters trying to exercise their most fundamental constitutional right. To challenge this law, we submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in March 2018 in support of the appeal of a federal lawsuit.
