Greg Steube Wants to Repeal ‘Motor Voter’ Registration

Last week, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., unveiled a proposal “to repeal certain provisions of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, known as ‘motor voter’ registration.”

Steube weighed in at the end of last week about why he introduced the bill.

“I’m introducing legislation that takes important steps to safeguard our elections and keep the federal government out of a task that should be left solely to each state,” said Steube. “U.S. citizens are the only ones who should vote in our elections. ‘Motor voter’ registration threatens election integrity by allowing registration with little proof of citizenship. Further, it forces election-related tasks on already overburdened DMV staffs.”

“This legislation leaves in place the provisions of the National Voter Registration Act requiring states to check their voter rolls periodically for accuracy by conducting a general program that makes a reasonable effort to remove to names of ineligible voters from the official lists of eligible voters in the state. This legislation also leaves in place the provisions imposing criminal penalties for fraudulent voter registration or voting activities,” the congressman’s office noted.

Steube’s bill was sent to the U.S. House Committee on House Administration. So far, there is no companion measure over in the U.S. Senate and no co-sponsors in the House.
