70% of states offer mail and early voting, new report says

A new report examining voting access across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., finds that more than 70% of states offer all voters access to a mail ballot and early voting, while 15 others lag in the methods available to cast a ballot.

The data from the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), provided first to CBS News, shows that 35 states, plus Washington DC, provide the most access. Those states, colored green in the chart below, offer either all mail elections or no-excuse mail voting, along with access to some form of early in-person voting. These states span the political spectrum, including deep-blue states like California, battleground states such as Michigan and Republican strongholds like Wyoming.

Article: Carl: Fighting for election integrity

Last week, House Democrats pushed through H.R. 1 – For the People Act, which should have been named For the Politicians Act, because it aims to radically transform our elections by taking election decisions away from the people and giving more power to bureaucrats. This act utilizes taxpayer money to fund campaigns, legalizes ballot harvesting, weaponizes the IRS for political gain, and mandates felons be allowed to vote.

Election integrity is one of the most pressing issues facing our nation, and while many in Congress attempt to further undermine our elections process, I’m committed to fighting for common sense rules that reflect the principle of 1 person, 1 vote.

Millions of Americans don’t believe Biden was elected fairly. Here’s how that’s affecting voting laws

Two months after Inauguration Day, President Joe Biden is fully immersed in the daily activities of the presidency. He’s signed bills, announced a flurry of executive orders and delivered a speech from the White House’s red-carpeted Cross Hall. Yet the false narrative that Biden was not duly elected lingers. That is, millions of Americans don’t believe the 2020 presidential election reflected the will of the people.

5 Discussions That Shaped the Justice Reform Movement in 2020

During this crucial moment, the Center for American Progress, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation virtually gathered 1,000 advocates, researchers, artists, and practitioners for the Innovations Conference, a multiday exploration of what it means to reimagine public safety and shrink the footprint of the justice system.

Sue Lani Madsen: Resolved: Voter fraud is a major problem in U.S. elections.

Last week, over 1,500 Americans attended a virtual debate on election integrity. Debaters were passionate yet civil. The moderator simply moderated. There was minimal impugning of motives and no personal attacks. It was delightfully refreshing.

And the event proved it’s possible to discuss a question so contentious that even the brave souls of Braver Angels agonized over having the debate at all.
