Report shows the extent of Republican efforts to sabotage democracy | US voting rights | The Guardian

Supporters with American flags hold a sign that reads, "Stop election fraud!!!" at a Stop the Steal rally on 14 November 2020.

The Republican assault on free and fair elections instigated by Donald Trump is gathering pace, with efforts to sabotage the normal workings of American democracy sweeping state legislatures across the US. A year that began with the violent insurrection at the US Capitol is ending with an unprecedented push to politicize, criminalize or in other ways subvert the nonpartisan administration of elections. A year-end report from pro-democracy groups identifies no fewer than 262 bills introduced in 41 states that hijack the election process. Of those, 32 bills have become law in 17 states.
