Texas Voter Suppression Bill (Texas NAACP)

Texas State Conference of the NAACP v. Abbott

Lawsuit filed in state court on behalf of the Texas State Conference of the NAACP, Common Cause Texas, various election officials and an individual voter challenging the Texas voter suppression law Senate Bill 1. The petition argues that the restrictions on early voting, ban of drop boxes and drive-thru voting, restriction on election officials promoting vote by mail, expanded power of partisan poll watchers and strict guidelines for accepting vote by mail applications and ballots violate multiple provisions of the Texas Constitution because they were enacted with a discriminatory intent and burden the right to vote for all Texas voters, but particularly voters of color.
