Cover picture for the articleSenate Democrats reached agreement this week on a limited package of voting rights reforms aimed squarely at GOP voter suppression rolling out in Republican-controlled states. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), chair of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, forged a deal with the full backing of Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) that contains provisions to, as NPR reports, “make Election Day a public holiday, ensure that every state offers same-day voter registration, set minimum federal standards on mail voting and ban partisan gerrymandering.” The bill also includes Manchin’s flexible voter ID requirements and “protections to insulate nonpartisan state and local officials who administer federal elections from undue partisan interference or control.”
