Sen. Kamala Harris has introduced a sweeping bill aimed at improving voter safety across the U.S.
The VoteSafe Act of 2020 would require every state to offer 20 days of early in-person voting and allow any voter to opt for a mail-in ballot.
Harris says the current pandemic, which has wreaked havoc on state primaries, “highlighted the obstacles many already face when voting”. She says minorities in particular often face “long lines, inaccessible voting locations, and outright hostility”.
I just announced a plan to ensure everyone is protected when they cast their ballot in November. Be the first to hear what this plan entails, coming up on @craigmelvin on @MSNBC next. https://t.co/VIO69aRIX4
