The fight over the right to vote in the United States has been a bruising political and social struggle over the course of our country's history. Texas faces a new test now, as the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to undermine our democracy. Thus far, Texas' leaders have tried to make voting more difficult and, in this moment, dangerous to many. But the fight is far from over, and you can make a difference.
