Democrats Are Short on Votes and Long on Irony

The party’s signature election-reform bill faces long odds in Congress, in part because of the problems it seeks to address.

Call it a catch-535: Democrats in Congress are trying to pass a huge slate of voting-related reforms, under the name of the For the People Act, or H.R. 1, that could aggressively reshape U.S. elections, change the way Americans vote, and also go a long way toward alleviating the Democratic Party’s structural electoral disadvantages. But the Democrats have to pass this bill with the tight margins they have in the House of Representatives and the Senate, thanks in part to the same structural disadvantages. The party finds itself short on votes and long on irony.

Democracy Matter- Voting Rights Information

Voting Rights are an important part of your right as an American Citizen. But obstacles prevent many American from casting their vote. These obstacles make voting harder rather than easier, as it should be in democracy.

Every American citizen is guaranteed the right to vote. Voting should be easy, convenient and fair. However the truth is that American elections  – both state and national – have long been marred by an infrastructure that is rickety, excludes too many, and are prone to partisan manipulation and deliberate voter suppression.

The New York Times Can’t Get Basic Facts Right on Election Reform

Not surprisingly, The New York Times is pushing liberal talking points when it falsely asserts in an article from Tuesday that reforms by state legislatures to remedy the vulnerabilities in their election laws are “voting restrictions.”

VotersUnite! is a national non-partisan organization dedicated to fair and accurate elections.

VotersUnite.Org is only one of many, many websites full to overflowing with stories of how badly computerized voting equipment has performed, how easily an insider or outsider could hack the equipment to fix an election, and how dangerous to democracy is the country’s dependence on concealed vote-counting provided by private, unaccountable voting system vendors.

States Propose Bold Measures to Prevent Voter Fraud

Thanks to the patriotic efforts of former and future President Donald Trump, it is now widely accepted that the only reason he lost the 2020 election was due to massive voter fraud perpetrated by his opponent.

This was conclusively proven by election security experts including Rudy Giuliani, the My Pillow Guy, and several nearly grammatical tweets by MAGAMark1776@StopTheSteal, who said he is sure the election was stolen because QAnon told him so.

Election 2020

Jody Hice tried to overturn the 2020 election. Now he wants to be in charge of Georgia’s elections.

Hice was one of several US House members who objected to certifying Biden’s victory in Hice’s home state of Georgia.

Republicans, you have nothing to fear from voting reform — just look at North Carolina

Already this year, more than 250 bills have been introduced in 43 states to restrict access to the voting booth, according to the Brennan Center.

A cynical political calculus is animating this effort — Republican lawmakers across the country have concluded that the more difficult they make it for voters to cast ballots, the better Republican candidates will fare on election day.

One Key Reform Can Fight Voter Suppression

There’s one trend election observers can be confident of year after year: Record turnout will always be swiftly followed by a tidal wave of voter suppression efforts.

The 2008 election was the first presidential election in American history  which voters of color constituted one quarter of the nation’s eligible electorate. That election also saw a massive shift in the racial composition of early in-person voting, with Black voters casting their votes early in person more frequently than white voters (an estimated 24 percent to 17 percent nationally).
