JUST IN: Vote-By-Mail Policies Lead to New Forms of Voter Suppression
While some states have expanded their absentee ballot eligibility and procedures in response to the COVID pandemic, other states have retained strict vote-by-mail eligibility criteria and requirements for returning a mail-in ballot. This poses unique challenges to Black voters who have been greatly impacted by the COVID pandemic.
Black Futures Lab partnered with Demos to take a closer look at vote-by-mail in three Black to the Ballot target states: Alabama, Nevada, and Texas and are now recommending immediate expansion of vote-by-mail policies in these states.
