Lawsuit Filed Before Governor Abbott Signs Voting Reform Bill

Two walkouts by Texas House Democrats weren’t successful in stopping a Republican voting reform bill from passing, so opponents are now going to court.
A broad coalition of voting rights groups, and minority and disability rights groups, are suing the state of Texas before Governor Greg Abbott gets a chance to sign the bill into law.
The lawsuit, filed in San Antonio, states the bill violates the federal voting rights law by diminishing access to the ballot box, particularly for voters of color. The coalition points to the elimination of voting enhancements put in place during the coronavirus pandemic, such as drive-thru voting and expanded voting hours.
