United States elections, 2013 

Dear Friend,

Election Day is this Tuesday. Around the country, people will be casting their ballots for important gubernatorial and local elections. But there will undoubtedly be some in Texas and Virginia who aren't able to exercise their democratic right to vote—all because of a set of laws designed to discriminate and suppress.

Voter suppression tactics are happening all around the country, denying us the fair and free elections that make America great. It's up to us to expose these dirty tactics, on Election Day and every day.

But we can't do it alone. Tonight is our deadline, we only have $2,000 left to raise.

Help us reach our goal.

We'll be reporting on what happens on the ground on Tuesday, tracking down cases of voter suppression wherever they might occur. And as we gear up for the even bigger elections of 2014, we'll be making sure that politicians are held accountable when they seek to make our elections less free.

No one should be denied a chance to vote.

Pitch in and help us reach our goal of $15,000 so we can keep tracking voter suppression.

Democracy doesn't happen when one person stands up and speaks. It happens when we all work together to ensure a representative democracy.

Donate now.

Thank you,
