Democracy Maps Updates: July 2022

MAP’s newest project, the Democracy Maps, tracks more than 40 laws and policies related to elections and voting. Our maps are updated in real time as legislatures across the country pass laws that impact voting, elections, and our democracy.

These are the Democracy Maps updates as of July 2022.

Legislative Trends

Recent legislative trends that are harmful for democracy are restrictions on ballot drop boxes and restrictive voter ID requirements. See our issue brief on additional policy trends shaping voting and elections this year.

State Policy Updates

Democracy Maps Policy Research

Our newest policy spotlight was just released: Automatic Voter Registration Best Practices in the States. The report details state approaches to automatic voter registration (AVR) and examines how differences in implementation of AVR can significantly impact election security and voter turnout.

MAP released an issue brief: How States Rank on Voting & Democracy Compared to LGBTQ Equality. This issue brief draws on our Democracy Maps and our Equality Maps to emphasize how voting rights are interwoven with LGBTQ Equality.
