Proposed: National Voter Election Code

Please forward this to your network, especially to friends living in states where voter rights are threatened:

It behooves our Congress to support legislation to create a uniform National Voter Election Code to ensure that the same rules apply for every voter relating only to the time, place and manner of elections as per Section 1.4 of the US Constitution so that a voter in West Virginia has the same rules for access to the vote as a voter in CT or GA or TX.

Congress adopted a Uniform Commercial Code after states had enacted a hodgepodge of laws making commerce chaotic. Democracies elsewhere have the same standard for voting for its citizens. It is time for the USA to do the same.

Senate Bill 1 should be renamed the National Voter Election Law and passed immediately.
