The Brennan Center for Justice, a non-partisan public policy and law institute, publishes this comprehensive overview of all the recently passed state laws that affect voting rights. In 2011, 14 states enacted pieces of legislation that affect voter registration or the voting process, and this brief title analyzes those new state laws to project what impact they may have across the United States. Topics include voter ID laws (with a focus on Texas), proof of citizenship, new restrictions on registration, and the elimination of some early voting procedures.
