More than a dozen states are gearing up to enact a sweeping voter suppression bill.
They’re urging President Donald Trump to stop tweeting again as the nation gears up for November’s midterm elections.
Here are the top six reasons why: 1.
We’re ready to start voting: As of now, Democrats control the House and Senate, and Republicans have a majority in both chambers.
They have a record of cutting the number of hours in which people can cast a ballot.
But the Trump administration has been slow to enact major legislative changes to restrict the voting process, such as requiring that voters show ID at the polls.
Democrats have vowed to pass a voter ID law soon, but so far they haven’t gotten the votes to get it through Congress.
The goal is to prevent tens of thousands of eligible voters from being disenfranchised in 2020.
Democrats hope to push a similar law into law in 2020, but it’s unlikely to pass without the cooperation of Republicans, who are unlikely to support the bill.
We need a real voter ID requirement: The federal government has no current policy to require people to show ID to cast a vote, which means most Americans can vote with their eyes open.
In some states, such a requirement has been in place since 2014.
But that means voters can cast ballots without a driver’s license, voter registration card or other forms of ID, and with few consequences.
Democrats argue that requiring people to present their photo ID could lead to thousands of people being denied their right to vote because they can’t prove they’re not a felon or someone with a criminal record.
In one of Trump’s first major tweets after the election, he said he would not impose a voter-ID law because “nobody cares” about voter fraud.
Trump is expected to sign the bill into law.
The election is on: The first midterm election since President Obama was re-elected in 2012 is less than two weeks away.
The midterm election will pit Democrats against Republicans.
The most important House races include House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
All four of them have said they would not support Trump if he were re-nominated, even if they have to face the wrath of Republicans in November.
Democrats say they plan to push for an early vote in some of these districts.
“We know this election is a battle for the soul of our country,” said Michigan State University political science professor David Wasserman.
“There’s no doubt that this election will determine who is president for the foreseeable future.”
Trump has already taken steps to help the GOP: As Trump continues to make headlines for his repeated tweets about voting fraud, he has already begun rolling back some of his previous moves.
He has begun directing federal agencies to begin instituting voter-registration drives in some states and instructed federal agencies and state attorneys general to enforce voter-identification laws.
Trump also said he plans to issue executive orders to protect the integrity of the electoral process.
The new Republican president will have to act quickly to secure the presidency.
“It’s not enough for President Trump to tweet about this, he needs to act,” Wasserman said.
“The president needs to get this right.”
We know what Trump means when he says we need to get rid of voter fraud: Many states have already enacted laws that require voters to present photo ID.
But Trump has not said he supports such laws, which have been criticized for being an attempt to suppress voting.
The president has repeatedly said he will not use his executive authority to enact laws that target voters based on their race or other characteristics, and he has threatened to cut federal funding for voting rights groups.
But he has not explicitly said he wants to enact such laws.
The White House says it is working on ways to help states and localities implement the voter ID laws, including training more state officials on the issue.
“States that are making these reforms are doing so with an eye to preventing fraud and ensuring that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast ballots,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.
We can’t trust the president to do his job: Many Democrats say that the only way they’re going to be able to trust Trump in the future is if he takes a firm stand against voter suppression.
But there’s little evidence to suggest that Trump is willing to do that, even as he’s faced criticism for his lack of action on voter ID.
The Trump administration recently announced it will provide federal funds to states that have passed voter-suppression laws.
In recent weeks, the White House has taken steps toward providing financial incentives to states to enforce those laws.
But so far, the Trump Administration has not shown much interest in actually helping them enforce these laws.
Democrats think that, if Trump is truly committed to restoring integrity to the election process, he will take a hardline stance on voter suppression laws.
“This is a president who has been willing to go
