In recent weeks, the Clinton campaign's top lawyer Marc Elias has filed challenges to voting laws in Ohio and Wisconsin -- both states with Republican governors considered to be White House contenders. Those challenges are in addition to a 2014 lawsuit he was already pursuing against North Carolina's election laws. The Ohio and Wisconsin complaints are technically separate from Clinton's campaign, but her spokesman Brian Fallon said in statement to MSNBC, "[W]e are aware of it and strongly support its goal of ensuring the right to vote is not unduly burdened.”

In Thursday's speech, Clinton is also expected to call on Congress to restore the provisions of the Voting Rights Act that the Supreme Court threw out in 2013, the Post reported.
