Stop Voter Suppression!

Don’t let a bureaucrat jeopardize our right to vote.
Our FOIA request has proven that County Clerk
Mary McClellan has no idea if her plan to eliminate 30%
of polling places will save any money at all.
This is a direct attack on our voting rights.

America’s unique gun violence problem

In the developed world, these levels of gun violence are a uniquely American problem. Here’s why.

gun violence connect the dotsvoxAmerica is an exceptional country when it comes to guns. It’s one of the few countries in which the right to bear arms is constitutionally protected. But America’s relationship with guns is unique in another crucial way: Among developed nations, the US is far and away the most violent — in large part due to the easy access many Americans have to firearms. These charts and maps show what that violence looks like compared with the rest of the world, why it happens, and why it’s such a tough problem to fix.

2018 could be a “wave year” for Democrats

A giant Democratic wave is coming in 2018

While the Alabama Senate special election was an aberration in many respects, the results were entirely consistent with the pro-Democratic trend that has persisted throughout 2017’s special and off-year elections. That would have been the case even if Roy Moore had eked out a narrow win. Republicans can, as Donald Trump has done, rationalize this or that 2017 defeat as being an anomaly. But it is impossible to take an honest look at the overall pattern of 2017 contests without hearing the not-so-distant rumbling of a likely 2018 wave for Democrats.
