Democrats and Republicans are taking aim at each other about voting rights. Each has portrayed the other as racist, naive or dishonest. In truth, each makes fair points and the best policy is to incorporate suggestions from each.
|Issue Suggestion Comment|
|Automatic registration <Democrat> Get all citizens registered easily|
|Accessible ballots <Democrat> Allow for big fonts, multiple languages|
|Picture ID <Republican> Prevent fraud and insure integrity of vote|
|Early voting <Democrat> Make it easier for people to cast vote|
|No Mail-in vote <Republican> Prevent fraud and insure vote integrity|
Many of the above recommendations complement each other. Allowing early voting minimizes the need for mail-in votes. Requiring a picture ID to prevent fraud is logical and also dovetails with eliminating mail-in voting.
The most important thing regarding voting is for it to accurately reflect the desire of legal voters. Fraud and the legitimate fear of fraud undermine our democracy, the government and unity of the republic. For the sake of that unity, incorporate the logical proposals of both Democrats and Republicans.
