The League of Women Voters of Alabama has condemned the attempted insurrection at the U.S Capital Tuesday.

“The League of Women Voters of Alabama unconditionally condemns the violent attack on the Congress of the United States which occurred Jan 6, 2021, and which led to the deaths of five U.S. citizens, and to the injury of many more,” wrote Barbara Cadell, president of The League of Women Voters of Alabama, in a statement. “Our democratic form of government depends absolutely upon peaceful compliance with the constitutional and legal processes that govern our elections and safeguard the peaceful transfer of power from one elected leadership to the next.”  

The statement concludes with remarks aimed a U.S lawmakers, and how each swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. 

“We expect and demand that our leaders honor this oath and abide by and defend the results of the constitutional process,” Caddell wrote. “This is the way to defend our democracy.“
