Letter to the editor: Right-to-vote act is vital

Sen. Leahy and Sen. Sanders must do everything they can to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, including fixing the filibuster, to realize the fair maps for all.

Here in Vermont the proposed legislative district map split my community in two — and prevents us from having our voices heard.

We need federal reform to ensure we have fair maps nationwide. The Freedom to Vote Act and John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act will end partisan gerrymandering and ensure more fair, transparent and nonpartisan maps.
