Before looking at the Act, which has severe federalism issues, let's review what we have learned about the major problems in the Fed elections today.

Let's ask a simple question. The states have existing voter mechanisms. If this Act forces changes for the Federal elections, then to what extent is it also coercive for local elections?


According to the BIden supporters, the republicans were "criminally negligent" in not voting for this Act!

Jennifer Cohn


No Hearings in the Senate!

The first sections have nothing about Mail-in ballots, the biggest problem

Is there a random number attached to the ballot that the person can use to check if the system has their vote right?

Nothing about dirty voting rolls.

Who determines "qualified election infrastructure vendors "
" the Chairman, in coordination with the Secretary of Homeland Security, " - federal takeover
" Technical Guidelines Development Committee "

$600,000,000 for fiscal year 2019; and
$175,000,000 for each of the fiscal years 2020, 2022, 2024, and 2026.

Absurd - forcing the ranked choice capability on states for which it has zero purpose.

I have more problems in my earlier tweets
