Friend -- Earlier this month, I stood on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, with a personal hero of mine, Congressman John Lewis. We stood in the exact spot where, fifty years before, he and hundreds of other brave men and women had marched for every American's right to cast their vote. Standing there on such an important anniversary was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me -- and it only served to emphasize how important it is that we make voting even easier and even more accessible. Again and again, throughout our nation's history, regular folks who believed in the right of every person to have his or her vote count have sacrificed their time, resources, and even their lives to protect our voting process. We can't let that work be undone. The Voting Rights Act -- the culmination of the work that began when these men and women set out across that bridge fifty years ago -- needs to be protected. Don't let this moment pass without taking a stand. Add your name to protect voting rights today: my.democrats.org/Protect-Voting-Rights This is important. Thanks for being a part of it. Barack Obama
