Progressives are floating yet another election reform: It’s called ranked-choice voting. This idea is so bad, even some dyed-in-the-wool liberals reject it.
While SB 3 has raised the bar to prove residency, Buckley notes it has also sought to prevent voting by those in New Hampshire for temporary purposes.
The Vermont Legislature approved AVR in 2016 with just a single “no” vote. It automatically registers to vote any driver’s license (both first time or renewal) applicant of age, unless the applicant consciously chooses to “opt out.”
The group behind the national popular vote effort says a recent federal appeals court ruling doesn’t affect the compact that’s been made law in several states.
