#1 Of course, now that Ds propose it, I expect Rs to oppose.

#2 Not enough. A national register of citizens, with biometric data and social security, DL, Passport and Voter Photo ID all linked to a single Unique Identification number.

Polling booths manned by National Guard, no campaigning or political talk outside booths, and ballots all counted by a dedicated government agency.

#4 Voter ID should not even be an issue. I'm only surprised that 20% don't think we should have it (These are probably members of the Dem Party). Of course, we should have voter ID. You need it for just about everything else.

#5 Eliminate absentee voting. If you want to vote show up at a polling place and present your id. polling official checks a data base (state or federal) and either accepts or denies your petition to vote. I prefer ID's on a state level because of response time and prevention of hacking. Further any official who interferes with identity checking is incarcerated for 2 months in an outdoor detention facility.

#9 the Manchin compromise requires ID for voting but defines ID to include utility bill

it is interesting in that a lot of Dems staked everything on getting rid of ID and so I don't see this getting a lot of Dem support without more watering done of the ID requirement

Manchin's bill also restricts mail in to those who have an excuse but here too the details matter and some Dems will find it too restrictive

The more important issue is that this entire effort takes power from the States and Federalizes it.
