After a federal judge demanded that Texas officials detail how they will begin complying with the National Voter Registration Act, a decades-old federal law that aims to make it easier for people to register to vote, the state has made little efforts to comply.

However, in the last couple months, all the Oscar mojo has seemingly shifted toward Jennifer Lawrence; with a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice, and a SAG award under her belt, we think Lawrence will walk away with the Oscar as well.
Western societies regard themselves as immune to this illiberal trend, on the assumption that their electoral systems are beyond reproach. The primary day cyberattack on the Knox County Tennessee election website has underscored the vulnerability of county level IT infrastructure.
