With a great uncertainty still looming in America today, many have begun to ponder just when life will get back to “normal”.
Will we be comfortable sitting close enough to one another to catch a Major League Baseball game this summer? What will our Memorial Day parades look like? Will we be free to roam outside on Independence Day?
Perhaps most importantly: How on earth are we going to vote in November if the fear of COVID-19 remains? One possibility gaining popularity among Democrats is the idea of mail-in balloting.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Tuesday formally joined her progressive counterparts in demanding mail-in voting and took it a step further, pushing a ban on cleaning voter rolls and urging officials to allow eligible individuals to vote “with a sworn statement of identity instead of a voter ID.”
Warren outlined her series of proposals in a Medium post on Tuesday, which include requiring states to mail ballots to every registered voter with pre-paid postage. She is also mandating that they “waive absentee ballot requirements that undermine social distancing guidelines, such as requirements that absentee voters submit copies of their IDs or include a notary or witness signature with their mail-in ballot.”
Additionally, the former presidential hopeful is calling for a ban on cleaning voter rolls, stating, “Congress should ban states from purging their voter rolls unless an individual affirmatively requests to be removed or there is objective documentary evidence, such as an official record of death or affirmative change of address. ”
There is sure to be a great debate over the ability of our government to curb voter fraud in such a scenario, particularly as we are reminded that Democrats have consistently downplayed the threat of such tomfoolery in past elections.
