Last year, anti-voter extremists restricted Arizonans’ freedom to vote by pursuing a sham review of the 2020 election results and passing harmful legislation that damages vote by mail. In 2022, they are doubling down to purge eligible voters, sabotage elections, continue attacking vote by mail, criminalize elections officials, and more.
And the legislature pushed harmful bills to grant itself the power to certify or de-certify election results, damage or end vote by mail, purge eligible voters from the rolls, and criminalize election officials. #WithYourWork we were able to defeat several harmful bills and the state Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional one of the worst restrictions the legislature passed. Unfortunately, Arizona did enact several anti-voter bills, including one that will purge the Permanent Early Vote List to prevent eligible voters from automatically getting a mail ballot, even as we remain in a pandemic.
In 2022, extremists have resumed their anti-voter efforts with bills that attempt to purge eligible voters, sabotage elections, attack vote by mail, impose criminal penalties including felonies on elections officials for doing their jobs, and more.

Last year, Georgia’s Governor and extremists in the legislature enacted SB 202 to sabotage Georgia’s elections and suppress Georgians’ freedom to vote. In 2022, they have already returned to further undermine voting through banning drop boxes, facilitating purges, and criminalizing voting.
In March 2021, Governor Brian Kemp signed voter suppression bill SB 202 into law. Your tremendous activism made SB 202 less harmful than it started out, including by protecting early and weekend voting, no-excuse vote by mail, and automatic voter registration, and by repealing discriminatory signature match. But SB 202 still restricts voting access and enables voter and election worker intimidation, election administration power grabs, disruption of local election control and certification, and mass voter challenges.
As Georgia’s legislative session gets underway in early January 2022, we’re ready to fight back against bad-faith anti-voter bills. Prominent Republican legislators have proposed measures to curtail ballot access like banning drop boxes, expanding criminalization threats to voters, and facilitating purges. Now, it’s time to keep the pressure on and take action to protect Georgians’ freedom to vote once again.
Last year, conspiracy theorists in Michigan’s GOP pushed more than 60 bills and a petition initiative to restrict Michiganders’ freedom to vote. In 2022, they continue to try to circumvent the will of the people to push their voter suppression legislation and a sham review.
In 2021, after Governor Gretchen Whitmer promised to veto a package of 60+ voter suppression bills that anti-voter legislators and conspiracy theorists introduced, Michigan Republicans launched a campaign to enact some of these provisions through a statutory petition initiative that allows them to circumvent both the Governor’s veto and the will of the voters. These provisions would damage election access, including by forcing voters to share personally identifiable information on both their voter registration and absentee ballot applications which could expose them to identity theft. Ultimately, GOP legislators did pass several anti-voter bills through the legislature, which Governor Whitmer vetoed.
In 2022, anti-voter lawmakers are continuing to pursue their initiative to restrict Michiganders’ access to vote, including by adding burdensome photo ID requirements and curtailing opportunities to receive mail ballot applications, even as we remain in a pandemic. Now, a sham review initiative has been introduced to use the same process to get around the will of the voters and Governor Whitmer’s veto. We can’t let them win.
Last year, New Hampshire enacted anti-voter bills and unsuccessfully tried to pass others. In 2022, extremist legislators are already pushing a sham review, voter criminalization, attacks on election workers, and restrictions on students’ freedom to vote.
In 2021, although Governor Chris Sununu signed anti-voter bills into law, your advocacy helped defeat several other harmful bills. With New Hampshire’s 2022 legislative session underway, extremists emboldened by the Big Lie have wasted no time resuming their attack on your freedom to vote.
They are pushing anti-voter legislation that:
Last year, Republican extremists passed anti-voter bills and introduced others that did not succeed thanks to Governor Cooper’s veto power. In 2022, they continue defending a discriminatory photo ID law and pushing anti-voter bills.
In 2021, the GOP-controlled legislature passed a package of voting restrictions to hoard power, including through the state’s budget, and introduced other bills to limit voting access that did not succeed. Republican legislative leaders also doubled down to defend North Carolina’s 2018 photo ID law after a court struck it down for being intentionally discriminatory against Black voters.
In 2022, anti-voter legislators will not slow their efforts to continue pushing bills restricting voter access to the ballot box and undermining North Carolina’s election system. Additionally, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether Republican legislators should be allowed to help defend the photo ID law in court.
Pro-voter groups are rallying to pass a bill to repeal the state’s literacy test that stunningly still exists in the constitution.
GOP conspiracy theorists bent on sabotaging Pennsylvania’s elections and restricting voting access are continuing to push an omnibus anti-voter bill and a sham review of the 2020 election results.
In 2021, thanks to your advocacy, Governor Tom Wolf vetoed an omnibus anti-voter bill that would have facilitated election sabotage, added onerous signature requirements for mail ballots, reduced the amount of time voters have to register, stripped power away from county election boards, and eliminated the permanent early voting list. But anti-voter legislators continued to aggressively push harmful bills, constitutional amendments to avoid the governor’s veto, and sham reviews.
In 2022, Republicans continue to sow doubt in our elections system by pursuing their sham review of the 2020 election results, despite their being repeatedly confirmed as accurate and legitimate. Lawmakers have also continued their efforts to pass their omnibus anti-voter bill HB 1800, and will likely keep targeting Pennsylvanians’ ability to vote by mail by trying to end no-excuse mail voting, imposing burdensome signature match requirements, adding restrictive ID requirements, and shortening the windows to apply for and return mail ballots.
After Governor Evers vetoed six anti-voter bills last year, extremists in the legislature continue their attempts to push the Big Lie, restrict access to the ballot, criminalize election workers, and sabotage the election system.
In 2021, thanks to your activism, Governor Tony Evers vetoed six voter suppression bills that would have cut back mail voting and imposed fines and criminal penalties on election workers for simply doing their jobs. Extremist legislators responded by pushing multiple sham election reviews, frivolous lawsuits, and threatening election workers.
In 2022, some Wisconsin Republicans are still immersed in their baseless, costly, and disruptive expedition to push the Big Lie while lawmakers simultaneously circulate more voter suppression bills and lawsuits to further undermine Wisconsin’s elections. Republican legislators and candidates for office continue to attack Wisconsin’s election system–undermining the nonpartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) simply because they followed the law and confirmed the accuracy and legitimacy of the 2020 election results. And legislators are also seeking to create new felonies to threaten election officials with for doing their jobs.
