Since 2020, many states have passed laws to protect their elections. Most of the time, they were met with intense criticisms by Democrat leaders.
But over the last few years, reports have suggested that election integrity is a bigger issue than some politicians have let on.
Now, Republicans in D.C. are introducing a new bill to secure American elections. How Democrats respond might expose their true motives.
Republicans on the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, led by Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL), have introduced legislation that would give states the power to verify the American citizenship of applicants registering to vote via mail…
The legislation would amend the National Voting Rights Act to allow states to require proof of citizenship for those applicants registering to vote in state and federal elections by mail.
Republicans in the Senate are spearheading an amendment to the National Voting Rights Act. This change would allow states to require proof of citizenship for anyone applying to register to vote through the mail.
This comes as Republicans accuse some Democrat cities of allowing non-citizens to vote. Many Democrats have opposed voter ID laws; some believe this is because they want non-Americans to vote.
Biden has pushed to give government-issued IDs to the many migrants who illegally crossed the border. It is possible that these migrants will be allowed to vote, despite it being illegal for them to do so.
It’s unclear whether this bill has a chance of passing. Should Democrats oppose it, they will have to explain why. Would this prove they want non-citizens voting in elections? Regardless, Republicans will need support from Democrats, if they want this bill to pass.
