    As of right now, presidential elections are administered by the states. Each state has their own election, then they send a group of electors to DC who are supposed to all vote for whoever got the most votes in the state election. This bill wants to give the federal government the responsibility to administer these elections, which would allow them to veto election laws that are intended to suppress certain groups of voters- most likely laws in Southern states trying to make it harder for black people to vote. This is a good bill. I hope it becomes law.

    I think America needs both election and campaign reform. We know the reps would object because they're comfortable w/ the ways they have manipulated/continue to try manipulating w/ voter suppression etc., the system in their favor. For example, they're 4 for 4 winning the presidency w/o the popular vote. America is the last country w/ an electoral college because of reps.

    The FASCIST want to make America a 1 Party System ! And Since they got away with stealing the Election from Trump they want to make it easier for them to do so in the Future !

    If America Wants  Free and Honest Elections is all we have to do is have CERTIFIED Election !

    Everyone who buy Alcohol from a Store, Get's a Job (Legally), Get's a Drivers license, has a Pass Port, has a Soc. Sec Card, will have no Problem Voting !!!!

    Why do the DEM's say it is RACIST to ask for Proof of ID to Vote ?????....

    They Think ONLY White are capable of getting ID's ?..... Are they really that Racist or think the Dem Voters are really that dumb ? ...

    Federally controlled is a misleading label.

    The Constitution allows Congress to pass laws regarding federal elections.  Congress has, in the past, adopted such laws (e.g., Voting Rights Act, Motor Voter Act, Help America Vote Act).

    There are some different ideas being discussed most of which are based on the concept of eliminating voter suppression and gerrymandering.  The current version of the "For the People Act" (which has not yet passed the House but was considered on the floor on March 2 and will probably pass the House later this week) includes:  1) provisions making it easier to register to vote for federal elections; 2) requiring the use of paper ballots in federal elections (most states will opt to use optic scan ballots); 3) requires states to have an early voting period for federal elections; 4) establishing rules for mail-in ballots for federal elections; 5) requiring states to use independent commissions to draw congressional districts; and 6) giving aid to the states to assist in improving election security with an emphasis on cybersecurity.

    We had a revealing gaffe by the attorney representing the Republican party at the Supreme Court yesterday who admitted that the reason for legislation making it harder to vote in Arizona was that, if more people voted, the Democrats would be likely to win.

    I have no doubt that they will pass something that will make it impossible for any other party to win.  Could be civil war then.  Told you.. the dems are communists!
