New Voting Laws: Urgency for Black Voters

Date:

spot_img

According to the Brennan Center for Justice, nearly half of U.S. states have enacted new voting laws ahead of the 2024 general election, many of which impose significant restrictions. Alabama, Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, and Tennessee have passed laws making voting harder, especially for Black and minority communities.

Alabama has criminalized assisting with mail ballot applications, impacting elderly and disabled voters, while Indiana’s law risks wrongly purging naturalized citizens from voter rolls.

Another major concern is the rise of deepfakes and AI-generated disinformation, leading to new legislation aimed at protecting the integrity of elections.

With voting access under threat and misinformation on the rise, Black voters must stay informed and vigilant as the election approaches. Eleven states have passed laws expanding voting access, such as easier absentee voting.
