State elections officials have a responsibility to ensure that only eligible voters participate in federal elections. This bill empowers them to verify an applicant’s eligibility without imposing an undue burden on voters attempting to register.
There are no solid stats to prove that ineligible voters casting ballots in federal elections is a problem that needs to be addressed at all — but this bill puts an undue burden on states and people registering to vote when states already verify eligibility.
