National bill on voting standards pushed anew by Democrats in Congress

By: - July 18, 2023 5:18 pm

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate Rules Committee Chair Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) join fellow Congressional Democrats to reintroduce the Freedom to Vote Act at the U.S. Capitol on July 18, 2023. The legislation’s aim is to push back against state-level restrictions that the lawmakers say undermine voting by setting basic national standards for federal elections.
