New Report Reveals Impact of Anti-Voter Laws Since 2020

A new report from the Movement Advance Project (MAP) highlights the rise in anti-voter laws, making it harder to vote since 2020. Despite the high turnout in the 2020 election, 24 states have implemented restrictive policies, such as strict voter ID laws and withdrawing from the Electronic Registration Information Center.

Brian Hinkle, a senior voting policy researcher at MAP, warned that these changes could lead to voter confusion and disenfranchisement, especially among marginalized groups.

The report shows that 65 percent of Black adults now live in states with at least one restrictive voting law. On a positive note, 18 states have passed pro-voting laws, including state-level voting rights acts, to expand access to protect voters.

Hinkle emphasized the need for state protections in the absence of strong federal voting rights legislation.
