The latest fact sheet from the Immigration Policy Centersummarizes years of research from the Brennan Center, Project Vote, The New York Times, and other sources, which prove that voter ID is a "solution" in search of a problem.
This guide from the Brennan Center provides citizens with the knowledge and tools they need to get involved with this round of redistricting, and to work towards continuing reform in the decades to come.
This issue brief from The Brennan Center contains sample legislative language for the main components of a fully modernized voter registration system: (1) one-stop automated registration of eligible citizens who interact with other government agencies; (2) permanent voter registration, so that once a voter is registered, she stays registered regardless of whether she moves within the state; (3) an online interface to check and update registration information; and (4) fail-safe provisions so that voters can correct errors or omissions on the voter rolls up through Election Day.
As coordinated right-wing legislative attempts to suppress voter turnout in disenfranchised communities continue in state after state, those truly concerned about protecting the right to vote are also taking action.

Two years of courtroom battles ended on Monday as Georgia received a green light from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to go ahead with its controversial voter verification system, a major step backward for the state.
As pundits attempt to digest what Colorado's primary on Tuesday night means for incumbents and insurgents alike, there is one thing everyone can agree on: voting by mail saved counties much-needed money while boosting turnout.
