Alabama State NAACP Disappointed in 11th Circuit Voter Photo ID Decision
The Alabama State NAACP is disappointed in the 11th Circuit ruling against the citizens of Alabama in the Photo ID Case.
The NAACP will continue to fight for the right to vote for all citizens without them having to produce a photo ID. Benard Simelton, President of the Alabama NAACP said, “This decision comes at a most difficult time as we mourn the loss of Congressman John Lewis who fought so hard for the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
However, the Alabama NAACP will continue this fight in honor of Congressman Lewis, we will get in Good Trouble.”
It is important for all citizens to go to the polls in August and November to elect people who believe in a true democratic voting process.
The NAACP will double its effort to ensure every voter has an opportunity to cast their vote in the upcoming elections whether that be by absentee or going to the polls themselves.
The Alabama State NAACP calls on the Senate to take up the HR 4, The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019, so that the citizens will have the full protection of the Justice Department when it comes to voting.
“The Alabama State NAACP has just begun to fight, we have taken a severe blow to the mid-section, but we have a lot of fight left”, said Benard Simelton.
