Breaking: The House just approved the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) August 24, 2021
The bill was passed 219-212. Zero Republicans voting for it.
56 years ago, heroes like John Lewis shed blood on the Edmund Pettus Bridge for the right of all Americans to vote. Today, as that right comes under attack once again, we honor their legacy by passing #HR4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. #RestoreTheVote— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) August 24, 2021

The right to vote is under attack. Our democracy is in unprecedented peril.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) August 24, 2021
History will remember us by how we meet this moment.
Are we willing to stand up for democracy?
Let’s pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Before it's too late.
BREAKING: NC Court just ordered LARGEST expansion of voting rights in NC since VRA of 1965. Starting now, ANY person on community supervision can register & vote—incl: felony probation, parole, & post-release.

I find it ironic that we just voted on a a bill tonight called “Budget Transparency,” and the next vote we will take later tonight will be on a procedural rule that will “deem” the budget as passed, so no one has to go on record voting for or against the budget. 🤦♂️— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) August 23, 2021
Told the Post I'd be voting for @TerryMcAuliffe for governor. His opponent, @GlennYoungkin, embraces the model of @GovRonDeSantis and FL on COVID, and Sam Brownback and KS on fiscal policy. Ugh. Proven moderate competence > reckless right-wing pandering. https://t.co/ZmOhC0M575— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) August 24, 2021
Thinking of my dear friend John Lewis today. He knew the future of our democracy was not guaranteed and dedicated his life to preserving it.— James E. Clyburn (@WhipClyburn) August 24, 2021
Today we have the opportunity to honor his legacy and send the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to the Senate. I'm ready.
