New GOP-led voting restrictions move forward in Texas
The Texas Senate has passed a bill which opponents argue will roll back access to the ballot box, especially for voters of color. The bill would eliminate drive-thru voting, grant more power to partisan poll watchers, and require a doctor’s note for people with disabilities who want to vote by mail. Supporters of the bill deny it has anything to do with voter suppression.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
