As DC Vote notes, "[Tomorrow] marks the first time in nearly 30 years that a DC voting rights bill has made it to the Senate Floor for vote. It's crucial that we show Senators that we demand the vote for DC!"
As Senator Reid has committed to bringing the bill to the floor tomorrow, DC Vote is sponsoring two huge activities today which are essential to passing the legislation, and Indie Roots is offering a free music download to help spread the word.
