Not a single Republican Senator thought this Bill was good? Not a single one? K

Kill gerrymandering and the Republican party lies in a grave next to it. Of course they wouldn't support it :ohwell:

To those who confused or not sure what this bill was about, read below.

 

What the bill would require on voting access:

Election Day as a federal holiday. 

Online, automatic, and same-day voter registration. 

A minimum of 15 days of early voting, including during at least two weekends.

No-excuse mail voting with ample access to ballot drop boxes and online ballot tracking, in addition to streamlined election mail delivery by the US Postal Service.

States would need to accept a wide range of forms of non-photographic identification in places where ID is required to vote.  

Counting eligible votes on provisional ballots cast in the wrong precinct. 

Restoring voting rights to formerly incarcerated people convicted of felonies. 

Imposes stricter regulations on voter list maintenance that make it harder for states to remove eligible voters from the rolls.

More protections and resources to serve voters with disabilities and overseas/military voters.  

Greater federal protections and oversight for voting in US territories. 

Improving voter registration resources and outreach, in addition to reauthorizing and strengthening the US Election Assistance Commission

The bill also includes the Right to Vote Act, which creates an affirmative right to vote in federal law.

 

On election administration and redistricting: 

Prohibits partisan gerrymandering by requiring states to use certain criteria when drawing new congressional districts.

Requires states to use voter-verifiable paper ballots and conduct post-election audits.

Gives cybersecurity grants to states and directs the EAC to strengthen cybersecurity standards for voting equipment. 

Prohibits local election officials from being fired or removed without cause. 
 

Makes interfering with voter registration a federal crime, and imposes stricter penalties against harassment, threats, and intimidation of election workers. 

Restates chain of custody requirements protecting the integrity of ballots and election materials, a provision meant to combat unofficial partisan "audits."

 

On campaign finance: 

The bill includes the DISCLOSE Act, which targets so-called dark money in elections, and the HONEST Ads Act, which seeks to enhance transparency in campaign advertising. 
 

Creates a public financing program for House elections and allows candidates to use campaign funds for "personal use" services including childcare. 

Creates a federal obligation for campaigns to report instances of foreign interference. 

Stricter enforcement of illegal coordination between single-candidate PACs and campaigns. 

Stronger enforcement of campaign finance regulations by the Federal Election Commission.

Seems like a lot of this stuff (even some which I agree with) would be very easily struck down by the Supreme Court

This bill is widely supported on all sides and only died because we're teetering on an all-out internal political war.

Its a fair bill that undoes Republican gerrymandering, and other ways they've baked advantages in the system. Dont forget most people in DC are psycho and don't represent their voters so...

3 in 5 Americans support it. Murkowski supported it. Statistically speaking, there is support from every point in the political spectrum in this country. And *again* the majority of America is in favor. 

The visible and obvious answer to why this isn't gliding through capitol hill is because the nation mindset is moving farther left and the established GOP knows the bill would be a death sentence to their future in power. And they've shown they'd rather damage the core of our democracy than have the country progress without their fingers on the scale. 

:oops:
