Republicans move to exert new control over election oversight ahead of 2024

Republican officials in North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, and Wisconsin have enacted various new rules and regulations to increase their control over elections ahead of the 2024 presidential race. Critics say these changes in who oversees elections and in what way they oversee them could shift the balance of power to the Republicans or lead to partisan stalemates when high-stakes Senate and presidential contests are on the ballot. According to Megan Bellamy at the Voting Rights Lab, “These state legislators are seeking new powers over election administration, and the ultimate outcome could be greater authority for partisan actors in the process.”
