The Idaho Legislature recently introduced several bills aimed at restricting Idahoans’ voting rights. These bills would impose stricter voter-ID requirements, purge voters off voting rolls and make the ballot initiative process one of the strictest in the nation.
The voting restriction bills come after an unprecedented voter turnout in Idaho’s 2020 General Election.
A new report by the Brennan Center, a nonpartisan policy think tank, found that 33 states have introduced 165 voting restriction bills. This report was released before the introduction of several voting restriction bills in the Idaho Legislature.
