The SOUND OFF Podcast: A Conversation about Voting and Election Reform

(LAPORTE, IN) -- Everybody is talking about election reform, so we spent hours digging into the FOR THE PEOPLE ACT and the Texas voting bills.


Congressional Democrats are still determined to pass the FOR THE PEOPLE ACT, sweeping voting and election bill blocked by Senate Republicans through the filibuster. The bill would allow same-day voter registration, require voting machines to be made in America and expand vote-by-mail allowances, among other things. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is similarly working on getting legislation passed in his state that would limit early voting hours, add increased identification requirements, and empower partisan poll watchers to make challenges.


So, we asked what our listeners thought? What kinds of reforms do you think America should institute in elections and voting rights? Listen to the full episode below:
