‘Voting rights’ or whatever the hell it is Democrats are pushing is done to further their power…
That’s it, there can be no other way to say it, and to be fair the GOP equivalent of this abuse is gerrymandering or what is commonly known as ‘redistricting’.
What we need if we are to be a functioning Democracy is to end all these games, or else end the process of Democracy altogether because the idea that a majority of people can force their will on others is evil.
Chuck Schumer is currently trying to hold a vote to end the filibuster so Democrats can usher in the era of nationalized elections—a move expressly against the American Constitution.
If they are able to pass this then we effectively have no more Democracy, and we will become a one party state just like the Communist state of California.
Here are the latest developments:

You would think career politicians like @SenSchumer would favor term limits to avoid the embarrassment of blatant hypocrisy from nearly two decades ago, but they don’t.

The Hill gave us some insight into the power move:
“Over the coming weeks, the Senate will once again consider how to perfect this union and confront the historic challenges facing our democracy.
We hope our Republican colleagues change course and work with us. But if they do not, the Senate will debate and consider changes to Senate rules on or before January 17, Martin Luther King Jr. Day,” Schumer wrote in a letter Monday to Senate Democrats.
Schumer’s decision to force a vote comes after months of behind-the-scenes discussions among Senate Democrats as they’ve tried to figure out a path forward, including weeks of intense talks in the lead up to lawmakers leaving town last month.
Democrats know they likely won't win the Senate so Chuck Schumer is trying to change the filibuster rules.

Trending Politics adds:
In order for that to happen, all Democrats need to be on board. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona have repeatedly defended the filibuster and may not be open to amending it, despite supporting the voting legislation itself.
Manchin took part in a series of meetings on potential rules changes with other Democratic Senators during December, which continued through the holidays.
