The right to vote is one of the most basic tenets of our democracy, and Jennifer believes that we need to make it easier, not harder, for people to vote. In the State Senate, she sponsored and voted for legislation to end gerrymandering, allow easier access to the polls, expand absentee voting options, and add more options for the acceptable forms of voter identification. She has consistently opposed voter suppression tactics by Republicans and she has consistently spoken out against the Republican myth of extensive voter fraud.
In Congress, Jennifer will fight against attempts to suppress access to the ballot box. She will vote to end racial and partisan gerrymandering, expand early voting, make Election Day a federal holiday, and reform our broken campaign finance system that benefits only special interests at the expense of normal citizens. Jennifer also supports sanctioning Russia for its interference in our 2016 elections, and taking active measures to dissuade future attempts to tamper with our electoral process.
