HR4 Isn’t Voting Progress, It’s a Power Grab
Can you imagine your hometown needing permission from the Department of Justice to move a polling place down the street for a local election?
Since the For the People Act (HR1) failed in the Senate, Democrats already have a replacement bill in the queue that would give the federal government this kind of sway in local elections.
The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (HR4) would be a huge step backward for election security and state sovereignty. It’s a shameless attempt to seize power over state election laws and sabotage election integrity reforms made by states nationwide since the 2020 election by giving the federal government oversight over everything from voter ID requirements to polling place locations.
