STOP Voter Suppression Billboards
In Pennsylvania, a swing state where the Latino vote is critical, a bunch of state-sponsored billboards just went up in predominately Latino neighborhoods that could stop qualified voters from casting their ballots.
The billboards read “Si Quieres Votar, Muéstrala,” referring to a law requiring voters to show ID that was suspended by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Pennsylvania voters don’t need to show ID in order to vote on November 6. But instead of obeying the court, local government is now using tax payer dollars to pay for these billboards that are designed to misinform and to stop Latinos from voting.
Tell Pennsylvania Department of Commonwealth spokesman Ron Ruman to immediately take down billboards and stop misinforming Latino voters.Take action
