A record number of eligible voters cast their ballots in the 2020 election. Part of that is due to election officials in nearly every state working to make it easier to vote during the pandemic. That meant lifting restrictions on who could vote by mail, adopting early voting, or even sending mail-in ballots to all registered voters. But now, in just the first month of this year, 28 states have introduced more than 100 bills meant to restrict access to the ballot. That’s way up from 35 proposals the year before. Soledad O’Brien talks with Danielle Lang, a voting rights attorney at the Campaign Legal Center, about how those measures could suppress the vote.
