This is the League of Women Voters webpage with the best link I have found to communicate to your legislators and local media about the current slough of voter suppression bills working its way through the Special Session of the Texas Legislature. It has a very easy to use method to send an email to the governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the Texas House, your State Representative, and your State Senator. It also gives you to option to send the letter to the editors of local newspapers.
SB7 was defeated in the Texas Legislature by all the Democrats walking out of the House of Representatives, and dropping them below their quorum. However, Governor Abbot has called a Special Session to get it passed. The sponsors of SB7 are now claiming they didn’t know what it would do. They knew exactly what it would do; they are scared because their voters are not happy, and they might not be re-elected. They have setup two omnibus bills to limit voting rights which they are working on right now. They are HB3 in the House, and SB1 in the Senate. Call or write your State Representative and State Senator to express your disgust at how they tried to attack voting rights. You can look up your State Representative and your State Senator here. Call Governor Greg Abbott too. He really doesn’t want to hear from you, so be sure to give him your opinion. You can call him at (800) 843-5789 (if your phone number has a Texas Area code, otherwise you can call him at (512) 463-1782), email him or write him at:
Office of the Governor
P.O. Box 12428

You can also submit public comments to the House at https://comments.house.texas.gov/home. The comments I sent them are here. The Senate does not give citizens the option to comment on legislation online. Public comments are only allowed in the Senate in person at the Committee level. This time the committee meeting was on a Saturday. The kiosk to sign up to give comments opened at 11:00 A.M. and closed at 1:00 P.M. Obviously, they have no interest in making it easy for the average citizen to make their opinions known, but require us to travel to Austin on inconvenient days and times to testify (because they announce the meting less than 24 hours before it begins). To testify in person for he House required signing up at 7:00 A.M. on that same Saturday. Here is is Beto O’Rourke’s testimony before the Senate committee on Saturday, July 10, 2021. https://twitter.com/BetoORourke/status/1414028130990186496?s=20
Keep the pressure up on them so they don’t dare try this again.
