We call on Congress to pass H.J. Res. 28, a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution to add a right to vote. Most Americans believe that voting is a fundamental, inalienable right of American citizenship. But this is not true. Problems with our electoral process are founded on a simple fact: there is no affirmative right to vote in the Constitution. The Constitution only protects against overt discrimination based on race (15th amendment); sex (19th amendment); and age (26th amendment). The states regulate voting policies and procedures, and hold the exclusive authority to select presidential electors. In other words, there are at least fifty separate sets of law handling voting. Since counties and, in the case of some states, townships run elections, there are effectively more than 10,000 separate voting systems in America
