In conjunc­tion with the Bren­nan Center’s report on state voting propos­als, below is a list of the restrict­ive and expans­ive bills that we are track­ing to date. 

As of May 14, 2021, legis­lat­ors have intro­duced 389 bills with restrict­ive provi­sions in 48 states. Twenty-two bills with restrict­ive provi­sions have already been enacted. In addi­tion, at least 61 bills with restrict­ive provi­sions in 18 states are moving through legis­latures: 31 have passed at least one cham­ber, while another 30 have had some sort of commit­tee action (e.g., a hear­ing, an amend­ment, or a commit­tee vote).

Note that, in some cases, a single bill can have provi­sions with both restrict­ive and expans­ive effects.
