Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 4) to amend the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to revise the criteria for determining which States and political subdivisions are subject to section 4 of the Act, and for other purposes, and providing for consideration of the resolution (H.

This resolution sets forth the rule for consideration of H.R. 4 (Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019) and H.Res. 326 (urging U.S. efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a negotiated two-state solution).
    It's very important that the voting rights act be amended so that it can reestablish it's function in protecting the rights of minority voters.

    I would like to challenge Republicans to stop blocking people's ability to vote. I challenge Republicans to join with Democrats in securing our election process; to apportion districts fairly instead of Gerrymandering; To treat voting a duty of every citizen to include automatic registration and mandatory voting. Republicans, if you can't win elections fairly then maybe you should rethink your platform.
