The House passed a voting rights resolution last night. 

It would be one of the largest overhauls of our election system in history.

It passed with no Republican support.

The bill restricts partisan gerrymandering, eliminates regulations that Democrats say cause voter suppression, and clarifies campaign finance laws.

The measure now heads to a difficult battle in the Senate.
