A new report by the Brennan Center for Justice warns the “tidal wave of restrictive voting legislation” pushed by Republican states this year will continue in 2022 as voters prepare to cast ballots in crucial midterm elections. The group says 19 states passed 34 voter suppression laws over the past year, despite no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

At least 13 bills have been prefiled in state legislatures for the coming year.
