    1. That’s what we have in Canada and it works well. Elections Canada and our voting laws are not subject to the gerrymandering and suppression whims of the ruling party and we get more polling stations in one city than you unfortunate folks get in an entire state- no kidding. You can vote with a picture ID like your driver’s license, health care card, passport, provincial ID, or Native Status card that matches your address of record on voting day.

    2. @L B states my have state requirements, but to vote for a national office, there needs to be national laws.

    3. @D. P. Well we may not be able to do that, since states have individual rights and leaders.

      But federal mandates should apply to all federal elections. Including congressional office holders, all presidential elections, and and federal laws voted on.

  1. Yea ,, Biden should send an battalion too that state and park it out the front of that governors home !
    Facing his home !

  2. Republicans are going to fight hard against voting rights cuz it takes away gerrymandering if it does that they’ll lose complete control of every state legislature

    1. SLEEPY CREEPY UNCLE JOEY IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE A LEGITIMATE “PRESIDENT”…HE HAS A PERMANENT ASTERISK NEXT TO HIS NAME….SMH

      John 8:44
      Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

  4. Refreshing to hear an articulate Politician these days. One who applies some critical thinking and can actually string words together that form a complete sentence! A Politician clear of Allegations for Lewd & Slimy Behavior and earned her status and position by actually doing her Job. Sadly, Rep. B Lee can almost be considered an Anomaly in the current climate of Schmucks, Low Life & Fakers dedicated to tearing the fabric of our Nation. Remembering the long ago cry of “Drain the Swamp”! – who knew more about it than the King Croc himself who unfortunately clogged it.

    1. Name one thing the Republicans Suppress, just one! You can’t. Better yet, let’s prosecute democRAT voter fraud.

    2. @Giles Bowman
      Remove ballot boxes in dems areas
      Closing polling places in dem areas
      Gerrymandering zones to get kkk in
      Hundreds of more ways…….
      Stop with this nonsense, and just admit your a bigot like mississippi burning bigot!
      Three cases of dead people voting has been proven they voted for trump!

    3. @Giles Bowman don’t you listen to trumps lawyer Sydney Powell, she said you are stupid if you believe the lies she spewed! Fact

  5. Robert Justin alford green at Nellis AFB where is my daughter Jahmela and her 4 children and what have you done to them.

  6. How about election transparency? No one benefits from error or fraud. Michigan, Arizona, Georgia, you name a swing state and they had anomalous results. If we can’t fix a broken process or investigate it fully, there will never be voting protections for ANYONE!

    1. @Joe Reaume still what? There are many audits that found fraud and errors, and more in the works. Did you know that? Look at the New Hampshire audit results….pretty concerning. Could care less about Trump. Care more about Democracy and election integrity.

    2. There was no fraud except for a few isolated cases that were all caught that were less than one percent of the vote in every state.

      Massive fraud would have massive evidence instead of the zero evidence presented to courts.

      Also when Colorado removed the restrictive voter laws that Colorado Republicans had passed in previous decades…. The most suppressed group that voted more often under the new system was Republican voters.

      Republican voter suppression laws suppressed poor Republican voters more than anyone else by a large margin.

      If you want more Republican votes, stop suppressing Republican voters.

  7. Make voting compulsory like it is in Australia. That way everyone feels honour bound to vote, and privileged to be able to exercise their democratic rights together.
