On June 11, 2021, Danielle Lang, Campaign Legal Center's (CLC) director of voting rights, testified on two of the most significant ways in which the right to vote has been restricted in recent years: first through attacks on the quality of in-person voting sites, i.e., polling places, and second through restrictions on opportunities to vote–including early voting, vote-by-mail and drop boxes. Both topics highlight the dire need for federal legislative action to ensure that all levels of government afford Americans meaningful and equitable opportunities to exercise their fundamental right to vote.

On Jan. 20, 2021, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the case.
