John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act Puts Partisan Bureaucrats in Total Control of Elections

June 2021 — Now that is looks like H.R. 1 will not pass, Democrats are moving toward a new bill, The John Lewis Voting Rights Act or H.R. 4. The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has written a backgrounder to better help the public understand this bill.

“The John Lewis Voting Rights Act is even worse than H.R. 1,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams. “It will put Washington bureaucrats in total control of our elections. Partisan Department of Justice bureaucrats will have complete power to veto all election changes from voter ID requirements to changes in polling places and hours. States must continue to run their own elections. Power should be kept with the people and not with the swamp in Washington.”
