Okay, both Dade Phelan and Dan Patrick invited us to point to places in #HB6/#SB7 where there is voter suppression.
So here's a thread of me doing that in SB7.
First, the restriction on 24-hour voting:
Second, the vote-by-mail gag rule:
Third, the free reign of poll watchers:
Fourth, the poll-watcher-as-filmmaker:
Fifth, the new form for voter assistants:
Sixth, the new formula for polling places (but only in counties with lot of BIPOC):
Seventh, restrictions on drive-thru voting:
Eighth, also restrictions on drive-thru voting!
Ninth, rule against donations to help run elections:
Tenth, the new fine for registrars:
Eleventh, making SURE that no one is voting conveniently:
Twelfth, this one's for the indicted AG:
See Dade and Dan? I can point to voter suppression in these bills. See Briscoe? I have read them! What's the next talking point on your list?
