Last month, I noted that the Republican National Committee had pledged $10 million to fight our voting rights efforts in court. This month, they doubled it to $20 million, while also announcing that they plan to recruit 50,000 poll watchers/challengers.

While it is increasingly clear that the President’s obsession with vote by mail is affecting all aspects of the Republican Party and the right-wing, we have stayed focused on expanding voting rights for all eligible voters.

No, Trump Cannot Move the General Election

There is one question that I get asked more than any other: is there any way—at all—that Trump can legally cancel or postpone the November General Election? The answer is clearly no.
