More than 100 companies sign letter opposing votiing bills

More than 100 U.S. companies including Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), Ford Motor Co (F.N) and Starbucks Corp (SBUX.O)have declared their opposition to voting curbs that a number of states are considering implementing.

Activist groups say the restrictions - outlined in voting rights bills already passed in Georgia and being weighed in, among others, Texas and Arizona - are specifically targeting Black people and other racial minorities.

"We all should feel a responsibility to defend the right to vote and oppose any discriminatory legislation or measures that restrict or prevent any eligible voter from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot," the companies said in a letter published as a two-page advertisement in Wednesday's New York Times.
