The United States of Amnesia: V***r F***d Was Nothing New

"Following the controversy of the 2000 P**********l e******n, the United States formed a bipartisan Commission on Federal E******n Reform. President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, and former Secretary of State James Baker, a Republican, chaired the group.

After five years of research, the group published its final report – “Building Confidence in U.S. E******ns.” It offered a series of recommendations to reduce v***r f***d, including enacting v**er-ID laws and limiting absentee v****g. The commission was unequivocal: “Absentee b****ts remain the largest source of potential v***r f***d.”

The report continued: “Citizens who v**e at home, at nursing homes, at the workplace, or in church are more susceptible to pressure, overt and subtle, or to intimidation. V**e buying schemes are far more difficult to detect when citizens v**e by mail.” ...

In 1845, Congress established E******n Day as the Tuesday after the first Monday of November. The Act sought “to establish a uniform time” for Americans to cast their b****ts for president. Historically, v**ers needed to provide a valid reason – such as illness or military service – to qualify for absentee b****ts.

But C***d served as a pretext to overturn that tradition. Just 25% of v**es in 2020 occurred at the polls on E******n Day. Mail-in v****g more than doubled. Key swing states eliminated the need to provide a valid reason to cast absentee b****ts. The v***s and racial justice became justifications to disregard verification methods like signature requirements."

It is now clear that the overhaul of our e******n system was a deliberate initiative from the outset of the p******c response.******n
