H.R. 1, Election Fraud, and the Future of Voting
At a time when half of Americans believe that there were substantial voting irregularities in November's election, Democrats in the House have passed H.R. 1, a bill they say would protect voting rights but critics say would make it harder for states to determine voter eligibility and otherwise ensure election integrity. The bill contains a veritable wish list of progressives' election-related "reforms," also including felon voting, redistricting commissions, public financing of Congressional campaigns, and expanded regulation of political speech. Our panel of election law experts discuss H.R. 1, its potential impact, possible alternatives, and what changes we're likely to see in future elections.
