To catch up a bit:
Republicans can’t help themselves in trying to stop people from voting news:
But courts are still (mostly) on the right side of this. A District Court in Texas held that a Texas gerrymandering scheme was a violation of the Voting Rights Act and intentionally drew districts on racial grounds.
The Florida Supreme Court restored voting rights to 1,000,000 people.
“Florida is one of only three states with a lifetime ban on voting,” Bailey went on. “This amendment modernizes Florida’s criminal justice rules by bringing our state in line with others nationwide.”
In the GA-06 runoff, GA officials are trying to say that nobody can register to vote after the primary last Tuesday and be eligible to vote in the runoff. There’s a 30 day cutoff in GA so you can’t register more than 30 days before an election. GOP officials are trying to push the idea that the runoff is just an extension of the primary and so the cut off should be 30 days before April 18, cutting off anybody who might register between now and the June 20, runoff.
There’s a special election in Montana coming up and Montana is not Georgia or Kansas. They have statewide elected Dems there and the Democratic candidate for the open House seat is a very active campaigner. The DCCC is coming in there.
