Brazile writes that her sister in Florida was a victim of voter suppression during the 2000 election. She was asked for multiple forms of ID and proof of residency, even though that was against the law.

"She knew her rights, and fought for them, but there are hundreds of thousands of voters who suffer the same indignity in silence," Brazile wrote. "Her story is just one of too many, most of which never get heard."

"Sometimes you don't realize how important the right to vote is until you lose it. Let's make sure no one in America ever has to experience that loss again," Brazile wrote.
