Voting Rights and Campaign Finance
Unaccountable and unregulated money in our elections has diluted the voices of our citizens. Big corporations and special interests have poured millions into our elections, in an attempt to influence politicians. Congress needs to return political power back to the people. Congressman Allred supports measures to overturn the Citizens United ruling, strengthen campaign finance reform, and increase accountability and transparency in our elections.
As a voting and civil rights attorney, Congressman Allred supports the restoring of the Voting Rights Act, ending extreme partisan gerrymandering and reinstating voting rights to those who have paid their debts to society. He is deeply concerned by efforts to erect barriers to voting, and supports measures like expanded early voting making Election Day a federal holiday to make the process more accessible for all citizens.
