What's in The John Lewis Voting Rights Act?

Why are Republicans in lockstep against it, someone should ask, point by point.

Requiring all 50 states to offer early voting periods for at least two weeks prior to Election Day, including on nights and weekends.

Establishing a national standard permitting no-excuse vote by mail for every eligible voter.

Making Election Day a legal public holiday, making it easier for voters to get to the polls.

Creating a less onerous national standard for states that have voter ID requirements.

Restoring federal voting rights to formerly incarcerated citizens upon their release.

Increasing protections for local election administrators from being removed for partisan or political reasons.

Banning partisan gerrymandering and establishing clear, neutral standards.

Making automatic voter registration the national standard.

Requiring same-day voter registration and online voter registration.

Curbing “dark money” in federal elections by requiring any entity that spends more than $10,000 in an election to disclose all major donors.

Requiring paper records and other election infrastructure improvements.

…..Add your own!

Like…National Democracy Day federal holiday every two years.

2. Thank you very much. Of course we never hear much about that cause there's way too much anger

Ozone can rain down on one or two folks for moderation by any truths.
