Campaign Legal Center (CLC) hosted the virtual event, “The Freedom To Vote in 2021 – What You Need To Know” on September 28, 2021 about some of the trends in access to voting legislation, the Freedom to Vote Act, other proposed federal legislation and the potential impact on voters across the nation. 

During the event, the panelists used CLC’s report "State Scorecard - 2021 Grades for Vote-By-Mail and Early Voting Opportunities" to discuss voting laws enacted at the state level in 2021 and highlighted how several bills have been introduced at the federal level in an attempt to protect the freedom to vote.

The conversation made it very clear that to achieve the promise of democracy for us all, American voters need Congress to pass both the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
