Today in history, the 19th Amendment was ratified, formally extending the right to vote for women. While it was a victory enjoyed by some, women of color faced barriers to the ballot long after. For that reason and many others, in a post-Shelby landscape, it’s even more important for Congress to Restore the VRA!

From what I understand this bill automatically registers every supposed eligible voter but it does not require state or federal identification at the voting booth. Is this true? Because all the bill does is open more voter fraud opportunities without the state or federal identification required without it. We already know we are about equivalent to a third-world country when it comes to any federal and state produced reports reliability. And that just amounts to vote fixing in the long run.
Rather then reform based on as President Obama has stated in regards to the latest FBI Report on Mass-Killings from 2000-2015 being unreliable and flawed which makes every report produced by every government agency fall into the same unreliable category as President Obama well knows as he required the authors public retraction how about for the voters who have no transportation just paying to have them taken to their local Department of Transportation Office, attain State or Federal Picture I.D., Register, and provide transportation to them on Election Day. Avoiding more dead votes, voter fraud, and fixed votes by Party association. It makes a lot more sense then putting our elections on an auto-pilot system that is known to be fraught with discrepancies' and  voter fraud already.

New FEC filings for this week's Florida U.S. Senate primaries illustrate a number of troubling campaign finance trends, including the proliferation of candidate-specific "buddy groups."

Applied correct, technology can help boost election participation, increase integrity, improve the voting experience, and even curb the influence of big money in politics — and it could be done with proven applications from the public or private sector.

Three cities — Las Vegas, Orlando, and Chicago — account for two-thirds of the total increase in murders. The data excludes large cities like New York, where police have said murder is down this year.
