Exclusive: Elizabeth Warren Has a Plan to Protect Your Right to Vote From the Coronavirus (Mother Jones)

Mother Jones: Exclusive: Elizabeth Warren Has a Plan to Protect Your Right to Vote From the Coronavirus. “Today, Warren is releasing a new plan—shared in advance exclusively with Mother Jones—that calls for a series of provisions in Congress’ next coronavirus recovery package that would protect voters’ ability to safely cast a ballot during the pandemic. The proposals would require states to mail a ballot to every registered voter with a prepaid return envelope, as is standing practice in states like Oregon and Washington; outline $4 billion in federal funding to help states transition to universal vote-by-mail before November (10 times what Congress allocated in its first recovery package); and say states should refrain from removing voters from registration rolls unless they can prove the person has moved or died since it will be very difficult for anyone removed to reregister during the outbreak.”
