Petition for Equal Voting Rights for Puerto Rico
As we celebrate our nation’s democracy and the values we hold dear as Americans, I remain convinced that our U.S. Constitution can withstand the inclusion of ALL of our legal citizens seeking full voting rights. Yet, any American living in Puerto Rico who chooses to claim residency there is automatically banned from voting for their own President of the United States – Hispanic or not. Please remember this the next time you are reciting our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance which states “with Liberty & Justice for ALL.” Help me send a message to Congress that the time has come to enfranchise your fellow Americans so that we can truly be the best example of democracy all throughout the world.
