The National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund is joining voting rights advocates across the country in encouraging all eligible voters to register to vote ahead of the upcoming elections this fall and next year.
"LGBTQ voters cannot afford to stay home on any election. Next year's presidential election will not only set the nation's course for the next decade, but it will also have lasting results for decades to come. If the country elects an anti-equality President, the Supreme Court could see a wave of new appointees that would derail major advances to fairness and equality for LGBTQ people and our allies," said Rea Carey, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund Executive Director.
"We cannot let the significant progress we have made be rolled back due to lack of participation in our nation's electoral process," Carey continued. "That is why we're joining voting rights advocates in urging all eligible voters to register to vote and to exercise their vote during each and every election."
The National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund has been working to ensure that all eligible voters are not denied the right to vote by pushing Congress to pass the Voting Rights Restoration Act. To register to vote, please visit: vote.usa.gov.
