The op-ed, published in USA Today on Wednesday, emphasized the 400 bills introduced to try to limit voting rights and the gerrymandering that continues to be an issue as it has been for years saying,

“When I spoke at John Lewis’ service two years ago, I emphasized a truth John knew better than just about anyone,” Obama wrote. “Our democracy isn’t a given. It isn’t self-executing. We, as citizens, have to nurture and tend it. We have to work at it. And in that task, we have to vigilantly preserve and protect our most basic tool of self-government, which is the right to vote.”
