As Texas and other states plan to move forward with election and voting reforms, locally Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon says:

“I’m extremely concerned about the climate nationally, where there are a number of state legislatures that have leveraged some of the disinformation and lies about the 2020 election in order to take us backwards in order to make voting a lot harder for their citizens in those states.”

Simon is strongly opposed to laws he sees as restricting voter’s rights. On the plus side, Simon says the laws in Minnesota have been largely put in place by both political parties with bi-partisan support.
