A Message From the Firm Chair and Managing Partner
Kelley Drye supports equal access to voting for all citizens and opposes laws that unduly restrict voting rights. Fair voting laws are fundamental to a representative form of democracy and ensure that each of our voices is heard. It is for this reason that we are proud to join with dozens of chairs, managing partners and corporate general counsel from around the nation in the following statement denouncing voter disenfranchisement.
“Equal access to voting is a fundamental right in the United States. Making voting easier, not harder, for all eligible voters should be the goal of every elected official. Election laws that impose unnecessary obstacles and barriers on the right to vote and that disenfranchise underrepresented groups represent a significant step backwards for all Americans. Now, more than ever, courageous leadership is required from our elected officials. We, the undersigned law firm managing partners and corporate general counsel, denounce all efforts to restrict the constitutional right of every eligible American to vote and to participate in our democracy.”
