    WASHINGTON, Aug. 7 /EMWNews/ -- Democratic National

Committee Chairman Howard Dean and DNC Voting Rights Institute Chair Donna

Brazile issued the following statement to commemorate the forty-third

anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act by President Lyndon

Johnson in 1965:


    "This week we commemorate the signing of the Voting Rights Act, a bill

that has come to be known as one of the most important pieces of civil

rights legislation in history. Its mission was to promote democracy by

tearing down institutional barriers to voter registration and polling

places and represents our core Democratic values. This legislation has

brought enormous advancement, but there is more work to be done to improve

the voting process and ensure it is fair and accessible to all. That's why

the Democratic Party is still working everyday to fulfill the full promise

of the Voting Rights Acts and make it easier to register to vote, cast a

ballot and know your vote counts. And we need a president committed to the

enforcement of the Voting Rights Act and protecting the rights of all

citizens to participate in the electoral process."
