Your Vote, Your Rights: Support Slate’s voting rights coverage

Voting Rights

A hand putting a paper ballot into a voting box

Slate is the best place on the Web to track how the rule of law is holding up in America.

Dahlia Lithwick—named the nation’s Outstanding Journalist in Law at the 2017 Burton Awards—Mark Joseph Stern, Jeremy Stahl, and the rest of our legal experts are watching what’s happening at the Supreme Court, the Department of Justice, and beyond, offering far-sighted analysis of the day’s biggest legal news and excavating the hidden stories you don’t know about but should. But we want to do more.

In 2018, we’re turning our attention to the cornerstone of our democracy: the right to vote.

Slate’s journalists will be offering expanded coverage of gerrymandering and voter suppression, investigating key legislative battles and court cases on the state and federal level. They’ll also offer new tools to help readers understand how the electoral sausage gets made.

If you think this kind of reporting matters, consider funding this work. Your contribution will go towards providing us the resources we need to do this important and urgent work.
