    Government finances election costs, so taxpayers bear all campaign finances of candidates
    Passed party line all dems pass, all republicans opposed.
    Eliminates all state election laws, all now over ridden by federal law
    No ID at all, absentee ballots no restrictions.

    Likely wont pass Senate. Biden said will gladly sign it into law.
    Democrat-Led House Passes H.R.1, Aimed to Federalize U.S. Elections (breitbart.com)


    The Democrat-led House passed the legislation on party lines, 220 to 210. A summary of the bill notes that it “expands voter registration (e.g., automatic and same-day registration) and voting access (e.g., vote-by-mail and early voting)” and imposes limits on removing voters from voter rolls.

    Republicans have warned that the Democrat legislation would vastly reduce the power of the states to control and operate elections at the local level.

    “If this bill passes, it puts in all these terrible provisions,” Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative and a senior legal fellow of the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, said during a January appearance on Breitbart News Daily.

    “It’s a federal micromanagement of the election process, and everything that folks on the left want to reduce the integrity [and] the security of the election process is in there,” he continued.

    “If you’re a state like Alabama or Texas that has a voter ID law, you might as well forget it, because this federal law would override all state voter ID laws so they’re now unenforceable,” von Spakovsky added.
