Election Update: Voting Law VictoriesNew laws making it harder to cast a ballot in 2012 will affect far fewer than the 5 million citizens we predicted last year, a new Brennan Center report finds. Overall, laws in 14 states were reversed, blunted, repealed, or weakened. “For the overwhelming majority of those whose rights were most at risk, the ability to vote will not be at issue on November 6th,” the report reads. The study also details the fights still to come after November — in state courts, in statehouses, and in the U.S. Supreme Court.
