Obama’s Voting Commission
Thursday, February 14th, 2013
President Obama announced an election reform commission during the State of the Union.
When any Americans – no matter where they live or what their party – are denied that right simply because they can’t wait for five, six, seven hours just to cast their ballot, we are betraying our ideals. That’s why, tonight, I’m announcing a non-partisan commission to improve the voting experience in America. And I’m asking two long-time experts in the field, who’ve recently served as the top attorneys for my campaign and for Governor Romney’s campaign, to lead it.
Some, including the League of Women Voters, think this is just kicking the can down the road. What do you think?
