Republicans restrict voting and undermine democracy
Based on Donald Trump’s big lie about widespread electoral fraud, lawmakers in Republican states have introduced hundreds of bills to restrict access to the vote. Courts, security experts and counts / audits found no evidence of electoral fraud and determined the 2020 elections to be secure. Yet Republicans are using the big lie to justify passing state laws that make it harder for tens of millions to vote. Gaining and regaining power in 2022 is of the utmost importance to Republicans even if it means sacrificing democracy and citizens’ right to vote. Power over the country!
Democrats are the protectors of democracy and the right to vote. Democrats in the United States House have passed the For the People Act (HR1). This bill eliminates undisclosed black money used to influence elections, makes it easier to register and vote for people, and provides safeguards against voter discrimination and district gerrymandering laws. US Representative Ashley Hinson and all Republicans in the House voted no. Now the For the People Act is in the US Senate. Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst will undoubtedly be Republicans of “power over the country” and vote no.
For the sake of our democracy, it is imperative that each of us find ways to bypass voting barriers, vote in large numbers, and defeat Republicans in 2022. Start today by registering to vote, putting updating your voter registration and urging your family and friends to do the same.
