There is also a chance that in bush' second election that there were some genuine problems

  • 54% of votes discarded in Florida were African americans

  • in the same election, Ohio made it harder and less accessible for African Americans and poor communities to vote too.

While these were ultimately rejected by the republican congress at the time. It does not change the fact that Bush only won the popular vote by 0.7%.

This is why we should stop letting states decide how their votes are counted and sent in, because they cheat for their own teams. The feds should go to every god damn state and count the votes without those states being allow to fuck with it, states themselves are commiting election fraud openly without consequence.

But what happens when one party gets control of the federal government and uses it to manipulate the votes to keep themselves in power? Leaving it to states is a huge check on a president like Trump who tried to have Georgia and Michigan change their votes.

I do however agree that there should be federal voting laws. But federal government shouldn’t run elections.

Good point, than at very least it should be joint operations where both that state and the feds work together, just like how Dems and repubs are supposed to have a seat at every table, both the feds and the state should be there too.

I think passing federal voting rights is the federal government’s “seat at the table” the only issue is that republicans in congress are curtailing meaningful voting rights legislature to be passed. They know that the only way they can win is with low voter turnout.
