Bill Tracking

The interactive index of bills below is curated, analyzed, and summarized by Project Vote’s election administration experts, and regularly updated for you to access at any time. You can search by state and by issue, and track bills according to whether they are—in our analysis—likely to help or hinder the ability of eligible Americans to vote.

Meanwhile, at least 421 opportunities in voting rights have been filed, introduced, or carried over. Seventy-three passed out of committee in the first house. Thirty-three passed the first house. Seven passed the legislature. Five were enacted.
