Script: My name is _________ and I am from Olympia Indivisible. I am asking you to support a “filibuster carve-out” for legislation affecting voting and fairness in elections. The rules change would provide that any legislation that concerns elections or voting rights is not subject to the filibuster (60 vote) rule but can be brought to the floor by a simple majority.
Mitch McConnell extended the confirmation carve-out to appoint three Supreme Court justices. We must use the same rule change to protect democracy.
