WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Mike Braun joined a press conference of Republican Senators to speak out against “H.R.1” – a bill that would take the constitutionally-given power to run elections away from the states and give it to the federal government.
H.R.1 undermines state Voter ID laws and allows unfettered ballot harvesting by allowing an unlimited number of ballots to be returned on behalf of others.
“Indiana does elections right, with Voter ID, ample time to vote early, and absentee voting that is accessible for those who need it but not universal. I am against H.R.1 because I believe states should run our elections, not the federal government, and not only is it the constitutional power of the states to run their own elections, we can also learn from the laboratory of the states what works and what doesn’t.” – Senator Mike Braun
