SB 7

SB 7 is a controversial legislation passed by the Texas Parliament recently. This GOP-led legislation seeks to make several key changes in the overall voting process. Among its many provisions, the most notable include limiting expansion of voting options, regulating distribution of polling places in urban areas, mandating paper trials for voting, setting new regulations for postal ballots, regulating donations to counties, setting new rules for removing people form voter rolls etc.

It is criticised for making it harder for people, especially the minorities, to participate in the election process. This is seen as one of the more than 20 laws that make it difficult for Americans to vote. These laws came in response to the growing mistrust of the mail-in voting.
