Voting rights in the USA: Inside a pivotal year for changes to American elections

·2 min read

It could be a year like no other for election changes. Across the country, battles are playing out over how to protect the right to vote, how to administer elections and how to safeguard the integrity of the process.

At USA TODAY, we’re writing about these issues and explaining what they mean for democracy.

We’re talking to poll workers, election officials, candidates, election experts and voters.

We’re traveling with organizers registering people to vote and advocates helping translate election material in other languages.

We’re monitoring election laws adopted by states and tracking proposals to draw maps for congressional districts.

We’re also watching Congress and the White House for any action on voting rights measures.

We invite you to come back to this page again and again and stay connected as we cover voting rights and election integrity during this year’s pivotal midterm elections.
