Don’t Miss This

We’ve been covering the GOP voter suppression movement for years, but we’ve never seen a situation quite like the one we’re in now.

As things stand a month before the election, voting right advocates have won a series of legal victories rolling back or throwing out voting restrictions in multiple states. But rather than that putting an end to the matter and clearing the way for more liberal access to the polls, GOP states and elections officials are slow-rolling the courts: ignoring or defying court orders in some cases.

It has forced voting rights advocates to haul states back into into court and hold them to account. They’re succeeding in most cases, but there’s no reason to think this won’t continue right through Election Day. Tierney Sneed reports.
