What happens next to voting rights in Texas?

During this year’s legislative session, Senate Bill 7 was introduced as the Republicans’ priority voting legislation. The bill included provisions limiting early voting hours, increasing vote-by-mail restrictions and curbing local voting options like drive-thru voting.
