WASHINGTON — Today, United States Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement in support of the newly introduced Freedom to Vote Act:
Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux said, “With an issue as crucial as protecting the sacred right to vote, the path we take isn’t as important as the destination. I proudly supported the For the People Act and the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, both of which laid essential groundwork toward protecting our democracy. The Freedom to Vote Act will protect voters just as much as it protects our elections. This bill protects absentee voting, prevents voter intimidation, restricts partisan gerrymandering, makes it easier for people to register to vote, and so much more. I look forward to supporting the Freedom to Vote Act when the Senate does its part and passes this important legislation along to the House.”
Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, an economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford.
