    “…in the aftermath of the GOP’s assault on the integrity of the 2020 presidential election and amid a torrent of Republican measures aimed at restricting voting rights in the name of security, Democrats are pushing for a far-reaching solution to counter attempts at narrowing access to the ballot box.
    H.R. 1, known as the For the People Act, seeks to abolish hurdles to voting, reform the role of money in politics and tighten federal ethics rules. Among the key tenets of the bill to overhaul the nation’s election system: allowing for no-excuse mail voting, at least 15 days of early voting, automatic voter registration and restoring voting rights to felons who have completed their prison sentences.”

Bilbo (Miss.) said in 1946. He added, “And if you don’t know what that means, you are just not up on your persuasive measures.” [“SEGREGATION FOREVER”: LEADERS OF WHITE SUPREMACY] https://segregationinamerica.eji.org/report/segregation-forever-leaders.html
