Our election system and some of its failures were on full display in the 2020 election. Now Congressional Democrats proposed legislation that would give the federal government full control of state election procedures. This 800-page bill would eliminate basic election security laws. It would also require states to have 15 days of early voting and automatic voter registration. It would ban voter ID laws and would allow the IRS to participate in partisan activity. Our Constitution gives each state the authority to implement its own election laws. Democrats know this but would rather give the federal government greater power. The real losers in this are the U.S. Constitution and the people and states that know what’s best for them when it comes to elections.
