Texas Governor Greg Abbott just signed an extraordinarily corrupt voter suppression bill into law in his state – but it’s not a magic wand. There are ways to work around voter suppression laws, such as making sure everyone is correctly registered in advance and knows when and where to vote.
Beto O’Rourke is looking to do precisely that in Texas:
They're trying to restrict and ultimately kill democracy.
We're working to expand and save it.

There’s still no word on whether O’Rourke will end up running for Governor of Texas. But for now he’s making his best effort at taking on Stacey Abrams role in Texas – and no matter what state you live in, you can help him by getting involved with his organization.
