Did you also know that Texas was deemed the fifth most difficult state to vote in? To be eligible to vote in Texas, a person has to satisfy an array of restrictive ID requirements. Additionally, Texas passed a controversial voting law in 2021, SB1, that banned drive-thru voting and 24-hour voting. These restrictive voting laws disproportionately impact people of color, a demographic that accounts for 58.6% of the state's population.
While women make up half of Texas’s population, 27.8% are not registered to vote
Statewide turnout was just over 45% in the 2022 midterm elections
We are striving to activate hard-to-reach groups of women that historically have been overlooked or excluded and continue to be disproportionately negatively impacted by voter suppression measures like the ones in Texas.
