Voter Fraud
Voter Fraud is a serious challenge to free and honest election in the US. Common practice in other countries it has developed growing concern int eh US in the past two decades. Suspicious situations, prosecutions and tactics like extending voting to other than election days, mail in ballots, unlimited extensions of delivery of ballots and undercover video evidence of intent and actual fraud combine to make our elections feel less free & honest. The left says there is no such thing as voter fraud … and if you disagree, you’re a racist. It is discriminatory and depresses minority turnout. They attack those who dare to support voter ID laws as “anti-voting rights activists and voter fraud hucksters”. The right says voter fraud is real. Indeed, Its practically a tradition in this country to do things the Daley way in Chicago, or the Philadelphia way, or voting control as with Tammany Hall in New York City. The right says we need to verify that each voter is legal.

House passes John Lewis voting rights bill that's set to stall in Senate

from Politico,

The House on Tuesday passed voting rights legislation named for the late Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a party-line vote that underscores the bill's nearly impassable upward climb in the Senate.

Senate Republicans filibustered a more sweeping Democratic elections bill in June and most also oppose the more targeted voting proposal.

It is unlikely to advance further in the Senate, where the legislative filibuster remains intact despite a progressive push for changes that would weaken the chamber's supermajority requirement to pass most bills. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has cast doubt on the need for the proposal, arguing that the Supreme Court only eliminated the preclearance formula determining which jurisdictions needed federal approval to make substantive changes to voting laws — not the voting rights protections themselves. Advocates, on the other hand, say the voting protections are toothless without that preclearance formula.

The Lewis-named bill only has one GOP sponsor in the Senate, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
