In a very good year, just half of eligible Texans cast ballots. The state's voter turnout often ranks among the lowest in the country.
Yet despite that stubborn reality, some of the challenges Texans face in registering to vote and trying to participate in elections have gone unaddressed by state leaders for years. What's more, leaders have instituted voting changes in recent years that have thrown up more barriers, particularly for voters of color or low-income voters.
