The bill would have Congress stop sending election security money to states which “are unconstitutionally disregarding state election laws.”
This week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., introduced a resolution “ to require members of Congress to have enough time to read bills before voting on them and certify that they have read every bill they cast a vote on.”
“I filed the VOTER Act this fall because I feared there would be issues this cycle with the influx of mail-in voting and a lack of standards in many states. If states fail to comply with these common sense measures, they won’t receive federal funding for elections. It’s that simple. Florida’s election system works well, and my goal is to make sure what works in my state is incorporated into election systems across the country so voters decide the outcomes of elections – not the courts,” Scott said.
On Thursday, Scott brought out the “Verifiable, Orderly, & Timely Election Results (VOTER) Act” which, he insists, will “establish uniform standards for vote-by-mail systems across the country and ensure the timely and efficient counting of ballots, with important safeguards to prevent fraud.”
