D.C. Voting Rights

Since 1801, Washington, D.C. residents have been fighting for voting rights in Congress. Though the district is the home of the capital and is the birthplace of many American liberties, its residents do not get the same representation in the House as the rest of the country.

A recent bill may give the mostly Democratic District of Columbia a voting representative in the House. The same bill contains provisions to provide conservative Utah with another seat based on its recent population growth.
