The National Center for Transgender Equality has released a new set of resources to make sure that transgender people are not denied the right to vote because of their identities. NCTE’s Mara Keisling explains the importance of the Voting While Trans campaign:

And much worse, the debates about voter ID laws alone have made the idea of voting so toxic that many of us aren’t even going to try to vote on election day. Voter ID laws are silly. State legislatures have enacted them attempting to solve a fake problem. And as a result, transgender people — like students, veterans, low-income people of color, and older Americans — risk being denied a ballot this year.
