In this issue…

States are running out of time to change their voting laws¬† // Congressional Democrats are running out of options for pushing back // House GOP goes all in on embracing Trump’s election lies

Hi, there! I’m Tierney! I have been covering voting rights for the better part of a decade and things have never been crazier. So we at TPM are excited to bring you The Franchise,¬†a weekly newsletter that will cover all the big news in democracy and ballot access. Every week, we’ll be recapping what’s been happening in the fights over who gets to have their voices heard in our system of governance and how they get to express it. So let’s get to it.
