Americans living in our nation’s capital pay federal income taxes, serve and die in our military during war, and are subject to federal laws, yet they have no vote in the US House or the Senate. Congress maintains ultimate control over the spending of local tax revenues, and families in DC have no voice in decisions of war and peace. All locally passed laws – and the District's local budget – must be sent to Congress for approval. DC Vote leads the DC Voting Rights Coalition, comprised of nearly 100 local and national organizations that fight for DC democracy. The organization is the primary resource for information on DC voting rights, maintains a vigorous public awareness and media campaign, educates students nationwide with a civics lesson that has immediacy and power, and advocates for DC in Congress. Winner of a Meyer Foundation Exponent Award and Ronald H Brown Foundation Award for Civil Rights Leadership, DC Vote fights to bring real democracy to the nation’s capital. You can cast your vote to restore the most fundamental right to DC families.
