The Voting Rights Umbrella

William Jefferson Clinton

*

“The right to vote is both fundamental to individual liberty and to the proper functioning of representative democracy. When voting rights are denied, diluted, or restricted, the ability of government to respond to our challenges and increase our opportunities is impaired, and its legitimacy in doing so is diminished.” 

William Jefferson Clinton is the 42nd President of the United States.
