Defend Texas Voters

Texas is already the hardest state in the country to vote. And during the regular legislative session — and the two special sessions that quickly followed — our elected officials tried to make it harder and scarier to participate in elections, especially for communities of color and people with disabilities.

When Gov. Greg Abbott re-introduced voting for the third time as a priority issue during the special session which ended Sept. 2, 2021, the legislature managed to pass Senate Bill 1. This despite advocates' hard fought efforts to stop it, as they had with the previous attempts to pass voter suppression legislation.
