A few changes are made to the election system. As a result 10,000,000 more American citizens vote nationwide and 10,000 more immigrants without citizenship. Would this be a good thing?
I don’t want voting easier. There is value in the challenge. Every one of those ten million people have a right to vote as the laws stand. It’s their decision not to go out of their way and vote.
I don’t want even one vote to count if a person isn’t eligible.
Good, but you would have to solve the problem of the 10k immediately. There has never been any evidence of those kind of illegal vote numbers. Just baseless accusations. It would be unacceptable. As is the massive voter suppression that goes on at a far larger proportion already.
I’m not terracing citizens for votes. Both should be done
10,000 is statistical noise.
It’s more important that citizens not be disenfranchised.
Citizens can vote easily, they are disenfranchised when their votes are made less valuable by people who have no right to vote casting ballots
Wrong. The bigger threat are voter registration purges, gerrymandering, moving/closing polling stations.
All officially sanctioned.
Exactly. There is surely some illegal voting in small numbers. That is not ok. But on the flipside there is are massive voter suppression campaigns in plain sight. We should all condemn both.
Yes and i know many registration purges in my state that have targeted republicans
@thedman by all means provide us a link so that we can condemn those incidents.
I’ve heard from and known many people that were given the wrong party or unregistered, targeting republicans and being ignored or facilitated by a leftist Secretary of State. I co organized a Republican State assembly campaign which was constantly mistreated (to the point of missing deadlines) by local election officials and government employees
A database process error by a technician is not the same as a policy driven purge of voters as it has occurred in other states.
Mixing up your party affiliation is nowhere near the same as preventing you from voting just because you have not voted in prior elections.
That's the exact opposite. They accidentally registered people to vote. Try again and see if you can find where Republicans were purged from the voter rolls.
