THE STATE VOTING RIGHTS TRACKER

The vast majority of U.S. election policy is made at the state level. Thousands of bills related to voting and elections are introduced each year in our nation’s state legislatures.

To follow these changes in real time, our team of policy experts has produced the State Voting Rights Trackera first-of-its-kind dashboard where we track new state voting laws and regulations and provide detailed analysis of all pending changes in all 50 states throughout the year. 

WE WORK IN ALL 50 STATES

State legislatures have unrivaled power to shape our election policies. While so much attention is trained on Washington, D.C., the greatest opportunity to expand voting access is in state capitals around the country. That’s why we work closely with in-state partners to ensure that legislators and state executives have the tools they need to enact fair and equitable voting laws.

We have three key areas of focus in our state work:

  • ​​Fighting voter suppression, including automatic voter purges, cuts to early voting, and reduced polling hours and locations;

  • Expanding participation in our democracy through early voting, equitable and accessible vote by mail, and other critical reforms;

  • Establishing fair elections by restoring the voting rights of formerly incarcerated citizens.

WHO WE ARE

The Voting Rights Lab team includes seasoned policy, legislative, organizing, and digital strategy professionals. Together, our team brings more than four decades of experience in major non-profits, political institutions, and movement-building initiatives.

We work shoulder-to-shoulder with in-state and national partners on all of our campaigns, sharing expertise and resources, and leveraging the power of on-the-ground networks.
