Voters waiting more than two hours to cast a ballot during the final weekend of early voting in Ohio on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at the Franklin County Board of Elections in Columbus.

Republicans have introduced more than 250 bills in 43 states to restrict voting rights, justified by false accusations of fraud in the 2020 election that sparked a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Democrats and voting rights groups liken the efforts to those of the racist Jim Crow era.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we look at the legacy of Jim Crow and today’s efforts to limit who can cast a vote.
