Media Roundtable: How Gerrymandering & Voter Suppression Will Impact Future Elections
On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing the Republican Party's ongoing efforts to suppress the vote. This week, Texas Democrats left for Washington DC to block the state’s voter suppression bill, one of the most restrictive in the country, and demand the passage of the For The People Act. Between January 1 and May 14, 2021, at least 14 states enacted 22 new laws to restrict voting.
We'll also discuss the current state of gerrymandering. David Daley reports that Republicans can win the next election through gerrymandering alone.
