One of the most pervasive narratives being pushed about our elections is that voting has become more difficult and voter suppression is rampant. However, Michigan's Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brand Raffensperger teamed up earlier this week to bust this myth in an op-ed published by USA Today:
Voters in recent years have been inundated with disinformation telling them they can’t trust their fellow citizens and neighbors who administer elections. That voting is getting harder, and powerful forces are trying to prevent them from expressing their voice. That in a nation as closely divided as ours, the only secure election is one where the candidate they voted for wins.Read more
With the Midterm Elections only a few months away, the nation's attention is starting to focus on the Department of Justice (DOJ) and what role the DOJ might play in this election to help Democrats. Just over a year ago, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced his intention to double the number of lawyers working in the Voting Section of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division, which is charged with enforcing voting laws. With a couple of well-publicized exceptions (e.g., Georgia, Texas, and Arizona), so far the DOJ has been relatively quiet. Is this the calm before the storm?Read more
Contrary to allegations from the Left that states like Iowa and Georgia engaged in voter suppression by passing stronger election laws after the 2020 election, these states are experiencing record-breaking voter turnout.Read more
Stacey Abrams once again won the Democrat nomination for Governor of Georgia last night after running unopposed. However, she lost her credibility in the process as her claims of voter suppression were proven entirely wrong. Ever since she was defeated by over 50,000 votes in 2018, Abrams has not stopped fighting "voter suppression" in Georgia and across the nation. When Georgia’s mainstream election reforms (S.B. 202) were passed in 2021, she claimed this would result in even more voter suppression. In reality, this could not be further from the truth. First, let's look at the facts as made evident by yesterday's Democratic Primary in Georgia:
In other words, not only did the law decried as “Jim Crow 2.0,” “Jim Crow on steroids,” and “Jim Eagle” increase overall turnout; under the new law, 27 percent more people voted in the Democratic primary — even with an uncontested race. This is the odd voter-suppression bill that results in many, many, many more people voting. (emphasis in original)Read more
Despite Joe Biden and other Democrats calling Georgia’s Election Integrity Act “Jim Crow 2.0,” the 2022 primary election early voting turnout has reached a record high.
857,401 voters cast their ballots leading up to Election Day: an all-time high for Georgia. But contrary to allegations on the Left that Georgia's new voting laws would suppress voters, this record turnout is actually the result of these recent election integrity reforms passed by the GOP-led state legislature and signed into law by Republican Governor Brian Kemp.Read more
Republicans and Democrats spent Tuesday presenting dueling visions for America's elections. Republicans want to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat, while the Democrats, led by President Biden, are willing to do whatever it takes—including changing the Senate filibuster—to achieve a partisan takeover of our elections.
Democrats will do whatever they have to do to get their way—including changing the rules—to fundamentally change U.S. elections.— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) January 11, 2022
It's been one week since Election Day, and as the RNC reports, last week's elections are proof that GOP-backed voting reforms work:
- In Georgia, Democrats lied about SB202, Georgia’s election integrity law, which led to a Democrat-backed boycott meant to hurt small businesses.
While Democrats in Washington deny the need for election integrity measures and continually try to undermine them with bills such as H.R. 1, H.R. 4, and the misnamed "Freedom to Vote Act," the past week has been a busy one across the country for allegations of voter fraud and election misconduct.
In Michigan, three individuals were charged with voter fraud after the state's voter integrity measures flagged their respective actions:
Michigan residents Trenae Myesha Rainey, Carless Clark and Nancy Juanita Williams have been charged with attempting to commit voter fraud following state investigations that resulted in accusations that the women improperly filed out ballot applications and ballots during the November 2020 general election, according to a state news release. . .Read more
