Americans are concerned with the threats facing our democracy, and Congress must follow the lead of states and localities taking a stand to protect it.

A new report from Voting Rights Lab reveals that nearly a third of legislation passed in statehouses this year makes voting more accessible. By March, 247 expansive voter bills had been introduced in statehouses, and as the legislative sessions progress, more of these bills are being signed into law.

Did the author not remember all the southern RRR states that did everything they could to pass voter suppression type legislation? Did the author forget the states that are voting out rights to privacy, womens' health issues, and more? What dreamland is this author in?
