Candidate Overview

Booker has not pledged to fix democracy first.

While he has spoken out about the harmful effects of voter suppression and gerrymandering, he has yet to put forward concrete policy proposals that would solve these problems. He has also not addressed how he would change the way campaigns are funded.

Here are some policies he could adopt to improve his platform:

  • Public financing of elections
  • Independent redistricting commissions
  • A full end to felon disenfranchisement
  • Ranked-choice voting
  • Clarify how he will end voter suppression

In His Own Words

“For years, the right to vote for millions of Americans —disproportionately in communities of color —has been under assault… It is time for a new Voting Rights Act to finally put an end to systematic attempts to limit access to the ballot box and strip citizens of their constitutionally guaranteed right to vote.” Source →

“During my presidency, we will fight to protect and expand every American’s right to take part in our democracy.” Source →
