Defend The Vote fights to preserve our most valuable American right: the right to vote.
WHO WE ARE
Our democratic values are under attack, most explicitly our right to vote.
Defend The Vote is a political action committee dedicated to preserving our democracy by electing candidates, up and down the ballot, who will fight to ensure fair elections, voting access, voter education and voter protection.
Throughout our nations history, and most recently during the 2020 elections, Republican obstructionists deployed several strategic attempts to disenfranchise voters. Despite their efforts, we prevailed. The 2020 election delivered the highest voter turnout in our nation’s history and Democrats flipped the Senate, held the House and elected Joe Biden as President.
Despite losing the election by over 7,000,000 votes, the Trump administration and officials at every level of government attempted to overturn the results. Their efforts were focused primarily in predominantly Brown and Black communities, exacerbating the existing inequalities and injustices that are so deeply rooted in our voting system.
These inequities continue today and that is why Defend the Vote fights everyday to elect candidates that will protect our most sacred American right: your voice, our vote.
