The League of Women Voters of Texas and the Texas NAACP highlight this point in a lawsuit filed July 20, 2017 in conjunction with the Brennan Center for Justice.

"Everybody counts in applying democracy. And there will never be a true democracy until every responsible and law-abiding adult in it, without regard to race, sex, color or creed has his or her own inalienable and unpurchasable voice in government." (Carrie Chapman Catt, founder, LWVUS)

"Every election, whether local, state, or federal, is our chance to have our say on the issues that matter most to us. The people we elect have enormous power over the laws and policies that shape our lives, so we all need to weigh in!" (LWVUS, 26 Aug 14)
