Barbara Lee at the Democratic National Sept. 4-6.
Hundreds of Alameda County residents will join Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), County Supervisor Keith Carson and other elected officials and community leaders to make sure all eligible voters in the county are registered and prepared to vote this fall, as part of National Voter Registration Day, Tuesday, Sept. 25 in Oakland.
The Oakland “For the People” Voter Protection event will be one of several across the country on the same day and at the same time, hosted by members of the Congressional Black Caucus as a part of the “For the People” Voter Protection Initiative H. Res. 542 to bring attention to block the vote efforts, like restrictive voter ID laws, that may impede as many as 5 million people from registering to vote and/or casting a ballot in November.
At least 12 states have introduced laws that would require proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, to register to vote or to vote.
The Voter Registration Rally will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sept. 25 at the Alameda County Building Plaza, 1221 Oak St. in Oakland.
