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?
