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

Today, a Pennsylvania state court judge delivered an order defending election integrity. The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court's order in Trump v. Boockvar held that the mail ballots of first-time voters who did not provide proof of identity by the statutory deadline could not be counted. The reasoning in the short order was important for the overall integrity of elections and inability of executive branch agencies to overturn election safeguards enacted by the legislature:

Boockvar . . . .Read more
