Vice President Kamala Harris announced Thursday a $25 million expansion of the Democratic National Committee's“I Will Vote” campaign, a move aimed at increasing voter registration, turnout, and protections.
“With this $25 million, the Democrats are investing in the tools and technology to register voters, to educate voters, to turn out voters, to protect voters,” Harris said at Howard University in Washington. “People say, ‘What’s the strategy?’ Well, I just outlined it.”
The announcement comes a week after the Supreme Court upheld restrictive voting laws in Arizona, and after 17 states have enacted dozens of new laws this year that restrict voting access, according to the most recent tally. Nearly 400 restrictive bills across 48 states have also been introduced.
