Voter Suppression Legislation in Texas

Election Protection

The Texas House and Senate have both passed versions of SB7, an omnibus bill to restrict voting. In the next two weeks, they will reconcile their differences, and likely pass a final bill that will be signed into law by the Governor.  Although we do not yet know exactly what will be in that final bill, we know what has already passed the House and Senate, respectively. There are material differences between the two versions.

This chart lays out the key provisions in SB7 as it passed the Texas House (May 7) and the Texas Senate (April 1).
