Texas Leads in Voting Legislation and Gerrymandering

Texas is in . The fastest growing state in the union is completely ruled by Republicans in all branches of state government, and as such, the Democrats of the state have been pulling every trick in the book to delay and deny legislation designed to cement GOP power there.  

The Real Steal: Electoral Forensics and the 2020 Election

— it is a field of which I consider myself a pioneer, certainly as it applies to the computerized voting era in the US. It is ​an endeavor I once only half-jokingly referred to as cleaning up after the election circus with a statistical pooper-scooper.

Republican Voting Restrictions Hit Their Own Base

Florida Republicans recently enacted severe restrictions on the voting process following the unfounded claims of fraud in the 2020 election — but experts say Republican voters may end up as collateral damage.   “[Republican legislators] have stated that they think it will help them. They have been very transparent that they are doing it for political reasons … but it certainly will impact Republican voters also,” said Cecile M. Scoon, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida.

Former Felons Fight for Right to Vote in Minnesota

More than 53,000 people convicted of felonies in Minnesota, who have served their sentences and are paying taxes, taking care of their families, and participating in their communities, are not allowed to vote.    “We live in a society that says that if you do something, if you’re held accountable, and you do your time, you’re supposed to have the opportunity to now come out. You’re supposed to be reintegrated in the community. You’re supposed to have your rights back,” said Cedrick Frazier, Democratic member of the Minnesota House of Representatives.  

The Bill’s in Manchin’s Court

Joe Manchin has a lot of power.   The West Virginia legislator is one of 50 Democratic senators, but, as a representative of a small, conservative state, he has no problem breaking rank with his party. And with the Senate split evenly along party lines, this means the fate of the Biden administration’s initiatives often rests in his hands alone.   Which means the Democrats have to please him to pass their agenda. Which means he can hold out for whatever he wants. Which he does.  

Costly AZ Election Audit Could Do Lasting Damage to System

The audit of Arizona’s 2020 election results in Maricopa County is scheduled to finally wrap up this week, more than a month behind schedule.   The recount, done by a private firm hired by Arizona’s Republican-led state Senate and by disgruntled right-wing million and billionaires, has focused in recent weeks on searching for secret watermarks and Chinese bamboo fibers in the ballots.    Nothing was found.

Voting Groups in Arkansas and Kansas Fight Suppression Bills

More than 389 bills in 48 states aim to make voting harder.
