Oppose SB 9 - Protect Voters!
We're directing you to a new action alert from the League of Women Voters of Texas to oppose a bill that was heard in committee yesterday. SB 9 - a bill that only seeks to make it more difficult to vote at a time when we need more and more eligible voters participating in the process!
From LWV of TX:
Request your State Senator OPPOSE SB 9, the Lt. Governor’s priority elections bill that will make it more difficult to vote and continue fear mongering about election safety. If your Senator is on the State Affairs Committee, request they reject SB 9 in Committee. If they are not, request that they reject SB 9 when it comes to the full Senate.
The bill would impose substantial unnecessary new barriers on those needing assistance to exercise their right to vote, particularly elderly & disabled voters.
It would loosen safeguards protecting voters’ private information apparently in order to make voter purges more common, such as the illegitimate one recently attempted by Secretary of State Whitley
It would bolster an ongoing campaign of selective criminal prosecutions aimed at deterring people from voting, particularly those from marginalized communities.
