Progressive Democrats of America-''Voting Reform Work'' (UPDATED)
They have put up a page, "PDA Supports Voting Rights Legislation - Civil Rights Emphasis," outlining their approach to voting reform. It describes the split between those working on the issue from the civil rights perspective versus those (including Republicans) who want to keep it on a more "technical" basis. It gives high marks to John Conyers legislation as well as a bill by Senators Boxer and Clinton. This is a complex issue that deserves close attention. Update: MyDD takes this point of view.
