What could happen if, next term, the Trump Supreme Court sides with Republicans, rules in favor of the fringe Independent State Legislature theory, guts much of the remaining Voting Rights Act, and gives GOP-controlled legislatures near-total power over federal elections?

➞ Courts wouldn't be able to stop the GOP from gerrymandering congressional districts.

➞ The resulting representatives elected by more gerrymandered maps could support extreme policies like a national abortion ban.

➞ They could simply ignore voters, similar to what they're currently doing on the state level.

◆ For example, even though 60% of Wisconsinites are pro-choice, Wisconsin Republicans support a state law banning abortion that was written in 1849.

We have to show that we're not going to let them get away with this. Will you rush a donation to the NDRC today?

And it doesn't end there:

The goal of those embracing [Independent State Legislature] theory is clear: to give control over our elections to extreme Republican state legislatures that are dominated by anti-democracy politicians who perpetuate and facilitate the Big Lie. – A.G. Holder

If Republican state legislatures have excessive control over federal elections, then GOP-controlled states could even refuse to certify valid election results. It would be Trump's attempt to steal the 2020 election on steroids.

The NDRC is fighting back, in part by working to help elect Democrats in 2022 who will safeguard our democracy. But we can't do this without you – so will you pitch in today?
