On Tuesday Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand told Just the News that she wants to make election day a federal holiday as part of the next coronavirus stimulus package.
“We want every tool available for elections because we don’t know where COVID is going to be at that stage,” Gillibrand said. “Certainly, vulnerable people won’t want to be voting in-person. So we want to make sure there’s a vote by mail component in all states. Typically states do have absentee ballots no matter what. So they have the infrastructure to do it. We just need it ramped up.”
“We want things like curbside voting to be available… We want to make sure that’s up and running. We want to make sure Election Day is a day off, and we want to make sure people can vote early because that’s another way, if COVID is still very much an issue… We want to activate all the flexibility in voting, so we have lots of solutions depending on where we are.”
The Democrats never let a crisis go to waste, and they see the pandemic as their opportunity to push for voting methods ripe for fraud.
