(FeaturedNews.com) – On Saturday, during an interview with MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to make a jab at Republican lawmakers who are making it harder for people to exercise their right to vote.
Harris stated that she can see that there are people who are actively choosing to register to vote, who fill out the ballot, and visit the polling centers in order to vote. She added that this effort should be appreciated, but that she worries that the recent laws would make voting harder for people.
Following the 2020 presidential election, Republican lawmakers have pushed forward a number of legislations that made voting requirements stricter. In Georgia, they passed a law that set new restrictions for absentee ballot requests as well as prohibiting the provision of drinks and food to voters who are waiting to cast their ballot.
Harris has argued that the United States has fought many fights for the right to vote, and yet these “so-called leaders” were deliberately passing laws that would make it harder for American people to vote.
As part of the election reform laws, there were changes to the time period in which voters are allowed to request mail-in ballots. They are also cutting down the availability of drop boxes while also taking inactive voters out of the registration lists. Many of these laws are aiming to increase the number of voters who cast their votes in person rather than through mail, especially following the 2020 presidential election when mail-in voting increased because of the pandemic.
