    Biden needs to make the whole country vote by mail and require drop boxes. That’d stop them until they thought of something else.

      There’s nothing wrong with this proposal. Biden doesn’t need to do anything.

    • Biden needs to resign.

      Bidens home state of Delaware doesn’t even allow drop boxes at all, and you need a valid excuse to vote by mail. Georgia has drop boxes (that have only existed since the last election) has no excuse absentee ballots, and 9 more days of in person advance polling. Georgia added two extra voting days on Sunday, in Delaware there is only one day of Sunday voting. The hypocrisy is mind blowing. But facts never seem to dissuade the indoctrinated.

  2. Nothing controversial about making it harder to cheat

    Activist news much!

  5. With the untold number of illegals entering the USA, it makes sense to at least pretend to show that politicians care legal citizens vote. Trudeau had to cheat back in 2019 and get 2 million non-resident voters to cast a ballet. Of course everyone of these votes all went to strategic liberal ridings that needed that extra push over the finish line.

    There are many examples of voter fraud and highly suspicious activity. Deniers are pretending this reality does not exist. Did voter shenanigans change the results of this election? Probably not but labeling steps taken to ensure vote legitimacy as controversial is the deniers telling you they want more illegitimate votes not less and we all know why.

  8. This legislation actually provides more opportunity to vote, check your facts.

    Banning vote harvesting, requiring ID, and banning bribery. How insidious.

    Voter ID is not controversial

    So controversial that Colorado already has had it for how long?

    I use an ID to drive, to get a job, to board a plane, pick up prescriptions, go to a bar, occasionally buy smokes and virtually everything else so why is showing my ID to vote controversial?
