Amid the outrage from liberals over the recently passed election security law in Georgia, GOP-controlled state legislatures are advancing bills in other states that Republican supporters say are necessary voting security measures but Democrats decry as attacks on voting rights.
The efforts were highlighted by Democrats as they pushed S. 1 and H.R. 1 in Congress last month -- bills that would take many elements of elections out of the hands of the states and put them under the federal government's control.
"Efforts have been made to suppress the vote. Efforts have been made to introduce bills that would suppress the vote," Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said of GOP-backed bills on the state level. "A dozen states including Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania, have introduced legislation to limit access to vote by mail."
But the conservative group Heritage Action says these state-level bills won't limit voting rights, but rather increase election security. And the group last month invested at least $10 million in support of these laws in several key swing states.
