Changes to voting laws across the United States

"We have all just lived through an election in which the way many of us voted changed. A lot of Americans voted early in 2020. A lot of Americans voted by mail because of the pandemic. Now across the country, state lawmakers are weighing what our election should look like going forward. Hundreds of bills have been proposed that would restrict voting access. Hundreds of others would expand access, and this is mostly happening along party lines. Republican led states are broadly looking to add voting restrictions, while many Democratic legislatures are exploring expanding access. Well, we have got reporters. From three states with us to give us a glimpse of what is going on in there. Patch. Let me welcome Been Giles from Cage's in Phoenix. Katarina so historic from Iowa Public Radio and Anthony Brooks of W bur in Boston. Welcome all three of your primary Louise. Then I'm gonna let you start. Let's go to Arizona, which along with Georgia are maybe the state getting the most attention. Those two certainly at both swing states, both with total GOP control at the state level and all kinds of bills. That have been proposed. What what is standing out to you in Arizona? So the biggest proposed changes I see are two what's called Arizona's permanent early voting list. That's our super popular mail ballot system. That a clear majority of voters here use and have increasingly been using in years and years and years. So not new in 2020 is what you're saying. Definitely not new. No, This is a very long standing system here. You sign up for it, and you regularly get sent your ballot, So one change would make it to that. That's not permanent anymore. If you don't actually use the early ballot, you get sent before an election for two straight election cycles. You get a notice that you're getting kicked off the list, and you have to respond to that if you don't want to be removed. Democrats here say there were 126,000 voters in that situation who cast about in 2020 after not voting in 2016 or 2018, Arizona's, of course, very competitive state now so That margin. You know, 126,000 voters could matter. There's also another bill that would shrink the amount of time voters have to cast that early ballot and then new voter I d requirements when you mailed about back or being considered Catarina is any of this sounding familiar. Let's talk about what's going on in Iowa, another Republican controlled state. New restrictions have already been signed into law here. The governor did that on Monday. Ah big changes that early in person Voting and absentee voting will start 20 days before Election Day instead of 29. It was 40 days just four years ago and then deadlines for requesting a melon ballot has been moved up and those ballots have to be returned earlier, so it's really shrinking that time frame. Then in person. Polls will close at eight p.m. instead of nine PM, as they had been before for state and federal elections. Okay. And why do supporters of these changes who we should note are overwhelmingly Republican. Why did they say this is needed? Unlike in Arizona, where Democrats one big races, Republicans in Iowa one pretty much everything and retained full control of the state government. But they have said that these changes are going to help restore Iowans confidence and trust in elections. Here's representative Bobby Kaufman, speaking about the new law. This protects Iowans right to vote, and it adds certainty and security to it. This bill does not suppress one single vote. Of course, we should say that it was Republicans themselves, who created this distrust by questioning election results with false claims of widespread voter fraud. This is something these false claims have been repeated in debates in Iowa over the selection bill, and I'd also add that a lawsuit challenging these changes have already been filed. Mary Louise. I'm hearing similar claims from Republicans in Arizona, broadly speaking there, justifying these bills by arguing that voter confidence and the election must be restored. They don't acknowledge that some of them are responsible for sewing that distrust in the first place. Democrats are quick to point that out and are lining up in opposition to these bills. Here's Senator Martine Cassata, speaking about the voter. I d legislation. We hear communities tell us That this will hurt my community, my neighborhood, my vote and the people that look like me and the people that vote like me. This is going to hurt us. Okay, so a taste of the conversation under way there in Arizona and in Iowa, Anthony Brooks. Let's turn to Massachusetts, where you have got a very different story unfolding. Yeah, It's really different. Mary Louise Esso last summer. Here's a bit of background because of the pandemic, Lawmakers approved a temporary vote by mail law and as in other states, Massachusetts saw ah huge jump in voter turnout in the presidential primary and general election with with relatively few problems. So now there's a push by Democrats who control the state legislature by big numbers. To make vote by mail permanent. So here's Bill Galvin, the Democratic secretary of state, who's a big proponent of this last year test of us in many ways, it was a very challenging year. But at the same time he showed us what we could do. And I think the result was is that we had a very successful election cycle on. We want to make sure that progress is not lost. Is this controversial in Massachusetts are Republicans. They're fired up in opposition and saying similar things as we were hearing from Republicans and other states. Well, there are concerns. I mean, one concern is that any law to make mail in voting permanent will have to include significant new funding for cities in town clerks to do training and to process the big increase in mail. Balance. But in terms of pushback, Republicans have questioned why mail in voting is necessary now that it appears that the pandemic is lessening with vaccines being distributed. But even the moderate Republican governor, Charlie Baker, has said that he would favor making the law permanent. So I think chances are very good. That vote by mail is going to become permanent in Massachusetts and in the months ahead. I do want to know this debate is playing out at the national level, of course, as well. Big Fight looming in Congress over HR one. This huge bill, backed by Democrats that would expand voting access would curtail Jerry Mandarin would have something to say about some of these changes that are being proposed in at the state level and just quick lightning round for each of you. Maybe Anthony you first. How how much attention is HR one getting is this part of the conversation in Massachusetts? It's part of the conversation because our congressional delegation is all Democratic. It's very much behind HR one. But my sense is that no matter what happens in Washington, Massachusetts move toward a permanent Vote by mail legislation is coming, no matter what and Banner, Catarina, where you're so in Arizona, I think Democrats are going to make a big push for our U. S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kirsten Cinema. Get HR one through to undo a lot of what's happening at the state level. That means there's gonna be pressure on cinema to abolish the filibuster. If that's what it takes, because HR one might be the only way to get around some of this state laws that Republicans are certainly gonna pass here and are expected to be signed into law by the governor. And in Iowa Republicans are going to be more focused on this pending lawsuit that they

You have 130001st dose vaccines that are available. That creates anxiety when you have a million people. Are eligible.

'A Death Sentence': US Prisons and COVID-19

"People are some of the most vulnerable took over 19 since March, researchers say more than 1600. People in jails and prisons have died of the disease, and tens of thousands have been infected. Some states have started to vaccinate people behind bars while others have not. And we're gonna look now at how this is playing out in three states. Alison Cherry is with Colorado Public radio and she joins us from Denver. Conrad Wilson is with Oregon Public Broadcasting, and he's in Portland. Joining us from Boston is dead Backer with W. B. You are good to have all three of you here. Hi. Hi. Hello, Dev. I want to start with you. In Massachusetts. Your state included prisoners in the first phase of its covert 19 vaccine plan. What was the rationale for that? Well, we know that the virus transmits quickly in correctional settings in the risk of contracting the virus and dying from it are much higher inside prisons and jails compared with outside. So in deciding to vaccinate prisoners. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican, said that correctional settings are no different from other congregate living situation, such as shelters and group homes where people are living in Copan close quarters and the virus can easily spread. So here's what he said last month when he explained why prisoners were included in the first phase. Our facilities are congregated facilities and we need to make sure that the people who work there and the people who live there because of the possibility of outbreak that that should be a place. We focus early in this exercise. The governor says it's strong public health policy because it's not just vaccinating prisoners. Workers are getting the vaccine to any pointed out. There are lawyers to go in and out of prisons in jail's medical workers, visitors those who provide programming, so the states thinking is that offering vaccines and correctional settings will help prevent the spread in the community. And so far, how is the vaccine rollout going in jails and prisons in Massachusetts officials say it's going smoothly, but it appears that a lot of people are not taking it. Court documents in particular shows that about a third of prisoners in more than half of prison workers have not received the vaccine. Now. That number does not include workers who may have been vaccinated elsewhere. So some correctional facilities are holding vaccine education sessions to encourage people to get the shop. Okay, let's turn now to Oregon More than 40 prison inmates have died after testing positive for covert 19 in that state. So Conrad give us a sense of what's happening with vaccines there now. Almost 7000 inmates have been vaccinated. That's more than half of the state's prison population. Many of those inmates have received their second dose, prison officials say, but vaccinating this many inmates this soon wasn't something Oregon health officials were willing to do on their own. Took litigation from a group of inmates on din order from a federal judge here in Portland. Basically, the inmates argued Oregon's vaccination plan didn't treat them like others living in nursing homes and other congregate care facilities where the vaccine has been administered. Your state representative General Bynum. She's a Democrat and chairs the Oregon House Judiciary Committee. I didn't understand how our adults in custody, we're any different from any other group in a congregant care setting. And I certainly don't believe that a prison sentence is a death sentence. The judge's ruling at the beginning of this month force the state to offer inmates vaccines immediately, So that's why about half of all prison inmates have been vaccinated. Let me jump in here. This is Alison and Denver Advocates here wish that that would have happened in Colorado that court ruling con artist is talking about in Oregon. Is something lawyers here have been trying to use as a tool to get inmates vaccines, and I know there's been a back and forth over this in Colorado. Alison tell us more about what's been happening there. Yeah. Democratic Governor Jared Pulis hasn't prioritized inmates at all. And initially he did in one of the early plans, but then Was called out for that by some prominent conservatives, You know, people saying, Do you want the murderer to get the vaccine before your next door neighbor and he was apparently sensitive to that, and so he removed prisoners from the lists and put them in just the regular population. So in other words, he's making no distinction that these people are in a group setting a 70 year old prisoner would be prioritized. A 70 year old non prisoner and so on. So the majority of prisoners are not being prioritized. I will note that prison staff has been prioritized in those vaccines are being administered now. So tell us more about the pressure that Colorado's governor has been under Well. He's gotten a lot of pushback for his decision to not prioritize inmates for vaccine for getting a vaccine, and he's also been sued. He has thought that lawsuit successfully so far. Rebecca Wallace is an A C l U lawyer, she says. Public health officials have been universal in saying that people in groups heading should be prioritized for a vaccine and governor pull. It has actually not only ignored that guidance but rejected that guidance from his own Colorado Department of Public Health on by think it really stand out because he's such a data driven individual in his other decisions. I'm curious. Early in the pandemic, there was pressure to release inmates to create social distance inside facilities that were often crowded. Have vaccination efforts change those conversations in the states that you're all in? Well in Massachusetts. Despite the early vaccination of prisoners, there has been little movement to release people. The fight over that continues mostly through litigation. There are pending lawsuits, but with so many prisoners getting vaccinated now, it does weaken the argument for big releases. Yeah, and in Colorado. Interestingly, the state's prison population has gone down by a few 1000 people since the start of the pandemic, But state officials attribute that almost 100% to the fact that there were no no criminal jury trials last year at all in 2020, so there's this massive backlog in the States Criminal justice system. So you've brought us three very different stories about policies around vaccinating, incarcerated people in three states that are very different across the country. How does this fit in with what we are seeing across the US nationally, Conrad Well, every state is really dealing with this a little bit differently. And, you know, really, This is another symptom showing a lack of a national strategy. Despite the risks, it's another way of, you know, also showing how inmates are marginalized by society. And this isn't just about those who are incarcerated. In a recent report by the nonpartisan Prison Policy Initiative, researchers found that there were more new cases and counties that have large incarcerated populations.

Massachusetts coronavirus vaccine sign-ups plagued by problems as Phase 2 rollout begins

"Medical researchers who work remotely have been rolling up their sleeves to get the covert vaccine. Meanwhile, seniors are waiting on the sidelines not yet eligible. Massachusetts has one of the nation's largest hospital workforces, and officials there have decided to put all of them at the front of the line.

Nobody goes out. I become more and more despairing and lonely cut off some human contact helpers that has a long list of complex medical issues. The most urgent one. She's going blind, She says. She's desperate for ice surgery. But in order to safely be in the hospital, she needs a vaccine. The vaccine would change my life. It would give me the future for weeks. She's been desperately trying to figure out how to get a shot. I am still Totally Totally in the dark. She's watched with jealousy as seniors in many other states have started receiving vaccines. She studied data from the CDC finding Massachusetts in the bottom half of states in per capita vaccinations. But perhaps most baffling is seeing healthy young people get inoculated before the elderly and the sick. We're seeing just a huge number of people get vaccinated. Who I think you know, should frankly be way down the line. Michael Mina is at Harvard School of Public Health, the other people who have nothing to do at all with Cove ID or with Patient care. We're really with the hospitals. They just happen to be employed by a hospital, and thus they can get the vaccine. Ah, few things are happening here. First, the federal level nationally, vaccines are being distributed to states based on their total population. The federal government has told states to prioritize certain groups like healthcare workers with lots of hospitals. Massachusetts has lots of health care professionals at the front of the line and effectively means that the elderly and vulnerable people who might need the vaccine first will generally be pushed back the second factor state and hospital level decisions. Here. The health care worker category has been defined to include all hospital employees. Those in research labs and telemedicine in HR, including people working remotely. Paul Bettinger oversees the vaccine rollout at the Mass General Brigham. He says his hospital network needed to bring in some of those working from home during the first surge. They called up researchers and administrators and others in the intensive care unit listening for the alarms of ventilators because the federal surge ventilators that we had wouldn't plug into our alarm systems now a third issue, individuals have been flaky. Dana Farber Cancer Institute sent out a mass email saying quote we have had far too many researchers not show up for covert 19 vaccinations over the past week. The result of the email says, is vaccines that may have been wasted. These challenges have been compounded by communication missteps and technical glitches, and Massachusetts has admitted hundreds of thousands of doses are sitting unused in hospital and pharmacy freezers. Governor Charlie Baker has announced. Those over 75 will be eligible on the first of February, and he's hoping they'll have enough vaccines to meet all the pent up demand. For NPR News and Gabriella
