DOJ is probing attacks on voting rights, says U.S. attorney general

Attorney General Merrick Garland has warned that the Department of Justice is keeping a serious and comprehensive watch on changes being made to voting laws across the country, particularly in light of the redrawing of electoral maps after the 2020 census and the “unusual round of second examinations” states and counties have made regarding the 2020 presidential 

election. In response to questions about the limitations placed on his department’s power after the 2013 Supreme Court ruling known as Shelby County v. Holder, the current Attorney General replied, “Are our tools weakened? Yes. But our passion hasn’t weakened.”
