18. The current SCOTUS may not have time before 2022 elections to overturn new voting laws

And because of that, passing the new laws now would help ensure Dems grow their majorities in 2022, which would allow them to more easily pass laws expanding SCOTUS from the current 9 seats up to a minimum of 15 seats, for a new 9-6 liberal majority. That would help protect voting rights by the time any appeals reach the court.

In addition, expanded Dem majorities would help pass statehood for DC and PR.
