Statement from Vice President Kamala Harris on the Supreme Court Ruling in Alexander v. South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP

The sacred right to vote is the fundamental freedom that unlocks all others. Today’s Supreme Court decision deprives Americans of that sacred freedom and further harms our democracy.
 
Let us be clear: Voters should choose their elected officials – not the other way around. Extremist elected officials’ attempt to dilute the rights of voters based on race is wrong.
 
South Carolinians and people across America deserve to have their voices heard and their votes counted. President Biden and I will continue fighting to protect Americans from discrimination at the ballot box, and we once again urge Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act.
