    Several national grassroots organizations on Monday joined Americans for Citizen Voting to voice our opposition to a new law (Local Resident Voting Rights Act) that allows non-citizens to vote in D.C.’s elections. The change in law, unfortunately, went into effect the next day. The purpose of our press conference was to put pressure on Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to bring up for a vote SJR 5 and SJR 6 which bans non-citizen voting in The District.I was joined by Election Transparency Initiative‘s National Chairman Ken Cuccinelli, J.

    … Restoring the voting rights of former felons drew national attention after Florida lawmakers weakened a voter-approved constitutional amendment and after a new election police unit championed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis arrested 20 former felons. Several of them said they were confused by the arrests because they had been allowed to register to vote. At least 14 states have introduced proposals this year focused on restoration of voting rights, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. An Oregon proposal would allow felons to vote while incarcerated. A Tennessee bill would automatically restore voting rights once a sentence is completed,...

    My wife works at the Minnesota state legislature, and the other day she was describing the scene as the Minnesota State Senate passed a bill that would grant illegal immigrants the right to get driver’s licenses.The concept itself has pros and cons–mainly having to do with ensuring that illegal immigrants be forced to carry insurance if and when they are on the road. I dislike the idea itself but understand how others might make a policy argument for it.What I cannot understand is the fact that illegal immigrants have been testifying before our legislature, threatening to vote legislators out of...

    A few hundred people met at a south Anchorage church Thursday night to kick off a signature drive aiming to get rid of ranked choice voting and go back to the way Alaska used to elect candidates. The new system, which Alaskans used for the first time last year, pairs an open primary with a general election that allows voters to rank up to four candidates. Art Mathias, a longtime Anchorage resident and founder of Wellsprings Ministries, is a sponsor of the repeal effort. He told supporters that ranked choice puts the entire country at risk. “Literally, seriously at risk,”...

    Dominion Voting Systems is in big trouble after the filing by FOX News in its case with Dominion yesterday. FOX News uncovered through its discovery in the case that Dominion’s own employees expressed serious concerns about the security of its machines. Dominion Voting Systems sued FOX News for $1.6 billion in a defamation lawsuit in March 2021. The AP reported on the suit in a very nasty and biased report. On Thursday, FOX News filed a brief in this case with Dominion Voting Systems. FOX News uncovered some material issues with Dominion and its voting systems. These items were so...
  • North Dakota Republicans Are One Step Closer To Banning Ranked-Choice Voting In State Elections

    North Dakota took a major step towards securing its elections on Wednesday after the state’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives passed a bill banning ranked-choice voting (RCV). The move aligns with the Republican National Committee, which disavowed RCV in its January meeting.In a 74-19 vote, North Dakota’s lower chamber approved HB 1273, which specifies that RCV “may not be used in determining the election or nomination of any candidate to any local, state, or federal elective office.” No North Dakota jurisdiction currently employs ranked-choice voting for elections, according to a local state news outlet.Under RCV, which critics call ” rigged-choice voting,”...
  • Biden administration supporting D.C. Council bill to let illegal immigrants vote? Extending the franchise for U.S. elections to everyone on the globe -- and maybe their dogs.

    The Biden administration is supporting a Washington, D.C., Council bill that would give illegal immigrants and other non-citizens, including—wait for it-- members of the Chinese Communist Party residing in the city, the right to vote in local elections. What could go wrong? Fortunately, Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Katie Britt (R-AL), are urging the Senate to take up a joint resolution that would stop the bill from advancing. The House of Representatives already has passed a (bipartisan!) resolution of disapproval of the D.C. Council bill. Prior to the House's measure, however, the Biden administration issued a memo stating its support...

    Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, caused a stir on Twitter Friday night after he said Democrats in Washington, D.C., were "ridiculous" to support a decision allowing non-citizens the opportunity to vote. "Only Americans should vote in American elections," said Jordan, prompting backlash. The Republican’s tweet concerned House Joint Resolution 24, or the "Disapproving the action of the District of Columbia Council in approving the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022," which passed the House of Representatives on Thursday. The resolution seeks to overturn a bill that passed the D.C. Council in October, which opened the local...

    Ranked choice voting is the answer to a question only a bureaucrat would even think to ask. To simplify, RCV is a voting method used most recently in the 2022 Alaskan congressional election which Sarah Palin notoriously lost -- that in theory blurps out a winner that is actually (really really trust us on this) the most representative of the wishes of the electorate. This magic trick is accomplished by people voting for their first choice, second, etc. and then the numbers are added up and moved about and cut and pasted and then the registrar of voters announces a...

    A recent New York Post article declared that, in a "staggering exodus," in 2022, more residents of New York moved to Florida "than any other year in history." The article reveals,A staggering 64,577 Empire Staters exchanged their driver's licenses for the Sunshine State version last year, according to figures from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles."They come in every day," a staffer at a Jacksonville DMV office told The Post this week with a weary laugh.

    California voters could decide whether to reinstate voting rights to people in prison on felony convictions under a newly proposed constitutional amendment. It would be a major expansion of suffrage for incarcerated people if passed. California would join Maine and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia, as the only states where felons never lose their right to vote, even while they are in prison, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The California bill, introduced Monday by Assembly Member Isaac Bryan, proposes an amendment to the state constitution. Bryan's proposal doesn't include any exemptions based on the...

    A year of crazy elections in Alaska is finally in the rearview mirror. But without ridding the state of ranked-choice voting, this confusing and ill-advised vote counting system will continue to undermine the integrity Alaska’s elections and disenfranchise voters in the future. Ranked-choice voting—or RCV—was approved in 2020 and made its debut in Alaskan elections in 2022. Instead of declaring a winner based upon who received the most votes, as is commonly done in elections determined by plurality, RCV requires a candidate to earn more than 50 percent of all of the votes. But instead of giving voters a second...

    Charles Barkley says fans shouldn’t be trusted to vote for the NBA All-Star Game because of the mistake they made when they last voted for president. However, Barkley quickly clarified that he didn’t mean the last presidential election but the one before. “We let the fans vote. Look what happened last time they got to vote for President,” Barkley said. Fill-in co-host Adam Lefkoe seemed befuddled by Barkley’s response.

    We’re reliably told by the Google machine that treason is “the crime of betraying one’s country.” Unless the Left changes the dictionary again, a distinct possibility, an act of treason is precisely what the local government in Washington, D.C., has committed against the country as well as the American citizens living in the city limits. Read on. In October, the D.C. council passed an ordinance to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections. The D.C. council voted 12-to-one in favor of the measure. The ordinance was given a big ¡Olè! by none other than that profile in courage...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reaffirmed his position on proxy voting Thursday morning, stating lawmakers “have to show up to work” instead of having someone else vote for them. “No more proxy voting,” the speaker said Thursday morning on Twitter. “Effective immediately, Members of Congress have to show up to work if they want their vote to count.” McCarthy, who already had a successful week as Speaker, reaffirmed his position on proxy voting, which was set in place after becoming Speaker and the House passing the rules package. The rules package was adopted on a slim 220–213 margin and did...

    Soccer Moms are giving way to Single Woke Females — the new “SWFs” — as one of the most potent voting blocs in American politics. Unmarried women without children have been moving toward the Democratic Party for several years, but the 2022 midterms may have been their electoral coming-out party, as they proved the chief break on the predicted Republican wave. While married men, women and unmarried men broke for the GOP, CNN exit polls found that 68% of unmarried women voted for Democrats.

    Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) said on Monday that he “won’t rest” until lawmakers pass national voting rights legislation, renewing his push for further reforms on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. “Nobody’s about to silence me on this issue of voting rights,” Warnock said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We’re going to get this done.” In the last Congress, Democrats tried and failed to pass sweeping voting rights legislation that sought to fight back against state laws in a number of GOP states that had curtailed access to the ballot.

Martin Luther King III during an appearance on CNN critiqued restrictions that impede Americans from casting their ballots and said the country has work to do on shoring up voting legislation and making access to the polling place easier. “It’s going to be quite difficult for any of that to happen with this Republican-led Congress, but we have to keep exerting pressure on them.

    As different states and municipalities across the country adopt ranked-choice voting, it’s become obvious this mind-boggling election system deserves a new name: rigged-choice voting.After nearly two months of tabulation, Alameda County, California, — one such ranked-choice voting (RCV) adoptee — announced it got the count wrong for its Nov. 8 election. As The Wall Street Journal reported, the California county admitted it made systemic errors while tabulating ballots. As a result of the snafu, an Oakland School Board race flipped: The top vote-getter (and certified winner) must now hand his board seat over to the third-place finisher.While gross negligence on...
