I just read the entire long Politico article and didn't find a single mention of what is in the bill. BUT I did read this- "an attempt at forcing control over state and local elections into the hands of the federal government". That explains the Christmas morning faces on the Leftists in the photo.

here in Sweden we have to show personal ID, or passport, or drivers license to vote... seems the Democrats don't like 1:1 relationship between votes:person...

The Democrats really don't like voter suppression. Unless their the ones doing it.

Black registration and votership has increased in every election across the country for the last 10 years. Despite their actions today vote suppression is historically a Democrat activity. I am amazed and disappointed at the media's uncritical acceptance of their rhetoric.

Sounds like an attempt to make the Democrats look like they aren't sitting on their thumbs...

How bad will your meltdown be when that coming blue tidal wave never appears? Will it be as epic as Hillary's when she lost the election? Asking for a friend...

When it's claimed "this will protect voter's rights", yet absolutely nothing is stated as to what voters are not getting to vote... You know it's a scam. The Democrats think it's "voter suppression" if you require a person to register before election day. That's not suppressing voters, it's suppressing fraud.

OK. Great. Which particular voter's rights? I presume you mean some percieved right to be forever on the registration even if you've neither voted nor updated your registration info in ten years or longer. I'm sure by now these leftist elites have figured out the the DMV is largely accesible and that pretty much every business transaction is impossible with out state ID, and that's fully racist to assume black people don't know how to get one.

Won't pass Senate (good). Even if it did, would be struck down by SCOTUS again. Good.

The article claims discrimination multiple times, but never gives any specifics on how that happens. Showing an ID to prove you are who you say you are should not be controversial.

I have no confidence in our fellow Democratic senators anymore to do anything other than political stunts. This wreaks of it. They need to do the right thing. Step down and move out of the way for someone whose words meet their actions.

Let’s see if the republicans kill this bill like they have with over 200 bill past just sense the democrats retook the house. Pelosi continues to play the game one level above the republicans setting the ground work for the coming blue tidal wave election. BTW the Hill is owned by a friend and fan of the president who has its reporting and editorial staff concerned and angry because of his ongoing pro trump interference in its reports. It’s far more right than it is Center.

this bill makes it each state must get an okay to change ANY voting practices first. That is not voters rights.

From the Hill... Under the bill, the jurisdictions would have to receive the clearance from the Department of Justice or the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia before making any changes to state voting laws.  The states and the political subdivisions within them would be subject to the preclearance for 10 years “if (1) 15 or more voting rights violations occurred in the state during the previous 25 years; or (2) 10 or more violations occurred during the previous 25 years, at least one of which was committed by the state itself. A political subdivision as a separate unit shall also be subject to preclearance for a 10-year period if three or more voting rights violations occurred there during the previous 25 years.” https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/4/text
