Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, signed into law Senate Bill 1, which tightens state election laws and puts constraints on local elections by limiting counties’ ability to expand voting options. The bill could expand access in predominant Republican counties by increasing early voting hours. However, it restricts how and when voters cast ballots. It cuts overnight early voting hours and drive-thru voting — both of which proved popular among voters of color. There are other restrictions listed in the bill. Do you feel this is voter suppression? Analyze the degree of voter suppression being a problem in the United States? Should there be federal mandates? If so, what is the remedy to cure voter suppression? Defend all answers.
