Justin Levitt, Counsel
Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law
Submitted to the
United States Senate Committee on Rules and Administration
Protecting Voters at Home and at the Polls
February 27, 2008
On behalf of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, I thank the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration for holding this hearing and for providing the opportunity to submit testimony regarding vote caging and other unreliable practices that threaten the voting rights of eligible citizens and the integrity of our voter registration lists. We have strongly supported measures that prevent the undue disenfranchisement of citizens based on inaccurate or unreliable information, and we are pleased to have the chance to do so again today, by supporting the Caging Prohibition Act of 2007.
