Biden vows to protect ‘sacred’ right to vote from GOP limits – Los Angeles Times

President Biden decried new Republican-backed state laws restricting voting rights on Tuesday, calling them “unconscionable” attempts to “deny the will of the people” — primarily, people of color — and “the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.”

“There’s an unfolding assault taking place in American today, an attempt to suppress and subvert the right to vote and free and fair elections — an assault on democracy, an assault on liberty, an assault on who we are, who we are as Americans,” he said in a speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, a venue chosen for its symbolic value.

“I am not saying this to alarm you,” he continued, speaking directly to the audience. “You should be alarmed.”
