Voting Group CEO Tom Lopach on New State Election Laws (Podcast)

Tom Lopach, the chief executive officer of the Voter Participation Center, joined Bloomberg Government’s Kyle Trygstad and Greg Giroux on the latest episode of Downballot Counts to discuss new voting laws in the states.

His organization is a nonpartisan nonprofit that seeks to register to vote historically disenfranchised populations. It’s advocating against many of the laws in states such as Georgia, which it sued along with other civic groups over some new restrictions, and is pushing for Congress to pass a voting, campaign finance, and ethics package (H.R. 1).

Trygstad and Giroux also discussed on the podcast the political implications of the reapportionment of congressional districts and a few states to watch.
