    U.S. District Court Judge Xavier Rodriguez on Friday approved a temporary block against a contentious provision in a new Texas election law. The decision pushes back against arguments made by the Texas Attorney General’s Office that blocking the provision at this point could confuse voters, according to CNN.
    “[The injunction] does not affect any voting procedures,” Rodriguez reportedly wrote. “It simply prevents the imposition of criminal and civil penalties against officials for encouraging people to vote by mail if they are eligible to do so.” https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/11/politics/texas-lawsuit-mail-in-voting/index.html

    Senate Republicans pulled a legislative maneuver Saturday to successfully block debate on a governor-backed bill advocates say will expand voting rights in New Mexico but opponents contend Democrats are using for political gain.
