Way to Win President, Tory Gavito, Calls on Governor Greg Abbott to Restore Voting Rights to Texans

AUSTIN, TX - Way to Win Co-Founder and President and past Executive Director of the Texas Future Project, Tory Gavito, issued the following statement today on Secretary of State Whitley’s decision to purge registered voters from the states voter rolls:

“Secretary of State Whitley should be ashamed of his likely unconstitutional act to purge Texans from our state’s voter rolls. Why is he afraid of more Texans exercising their constitutional rights?

Texas should encourage and prioritize more ways for more Texans to get involved in the democratic process, rather than engaging in blatant voter suppression tactics and creating new barriers to voting because they are concerned about losing the next election. Everything is bigger in Texas, so should its democracy.”
