Does Microsoft really support Voting Rights?

Microsoft has made clear and unambiguous statements around their support for voting rights, and their opposition to laws that restrict people's ability to vote. They have made public pledges and signed multiple petitions aligned with this view. Howerver, they have also made some in various states (relatively small, compared to others) donations to politicians who have been sponsoring such laws, so the score has a small penalty to account for this factor.
