“Facts First: This needs context. We won’t weigh in on what Republicans around the country believe in their hearts, but it’s worth noting that Republican state legislators in numerous states are trying to pass measures that would reduce voter access in various ways.
Republican legislators in Texas, for example, have proposed this spring to prohibit 24-hour early voting sites and drive-through voting sites like those used in urban Harris County in 2020 and to forbid local officials from sending out absentee ballot applications to every registered voter, among other measures.
Florida Republicans have proposed adding restrictions on the use of drop boxes, among other changes you can read about here.
Republicans in various other states, including key swing states in presidential elections, have proposed multiple other measures that would reduce voter access. Some Republicans have also proposed expansions to early voting hours and other provisions to boost access, but the overall picture is certainly not even close to as solidly pro-access as Scott suggested.”
