This is the author of a book about voting rights. The “Commission” Kobach is leading is undoubtedly a means towards additional voter suppression. Glad to see the states are seeing right through this. Voter suppression efforts + gerrymandering feel like the biggest threats to our democracy right now and we must #resist.
27 states now opposing Kobach: AZ, CA, CT, IN, KY, MA, MN, MS, MT, NC, NM, ND, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI

Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order establishing a commission to study “election integrity.” He announced that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach would co-chair the commission with VP Pence. This is truly insane.
The ACLU is having none of this.
Kris Kobach, vice chair of "Election Integrity" commission, has been sued by the ACLU for voter suppression 4 times.
