GOP Lawmakers Seek Tougher Rules on Election Voting

( – Since 2020’s election, there has been much debate about the security of our voting systems. Despite the insistence of some commentators that we have nothing to fear when it comes to electoral mismanagement or voter fraud, many serious questions remain about the integrity of these frameworks. For this reason, lawmakers in a number of states have proposed the revision of laws around voting in elections. 

Suggested changes include the restriction of mail-in and absentee voting, as well as more stringent voter ID and registration requirements.

On Tuesday, January 26, the Brennan Center for Justice published a report on legislation of this nature that’s already been introduced. The report found over 100 bills on voting access had been written in 28 states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Texas.

Last year, an unprecedented 70% of votes were cast before Election Day. While this may never be the case again, we need a system that’s robust enough to work properly and transparently in a situation like this. Our democratic structures are too important to leave vulnerable to potential security flaws.
