Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Elections and Voting Rights


Beatty on Elections and Voting Rights

The right to vote is among the most fundamental rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, and any attempt to infringe upon that right poses a serious threat to our democracy. I am committed to making it easier for Americans to vote, not harder. In addition, I am leading the charge against voter purge initiatives in Ohio and across the nation.

Highlights of Beatty Work to Protect Voting Rights

  • Introduced the Save Voters Act to prohibit states from using the same type of questionable voter purge tactics that Ohio has used to take thousands of eligible voters off the voting rolls.
  • Sponsor of a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s Citizens United case and reduce the influence of money in our elections.
  • Supports legislation to update the Voting Rights Act to protect every Americans’ right to vote.
  • Deputy Vice Chair of the Congressional Voting Rights Caucus
