Republicans Plan Ballot Harvesting Amendment to H.R. 1

The Washington Examiner:

Among the provisions Republicans may attach to the campaign finance legislation is one that would prohibit ballot harvesting, which is the practice of collecting absentee ballots and delivering them to a polling site with the intent to create a vote surge for a preferred candidate.

Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., authored the measure and attempted to attach it to H.R. 1 during committee consideration, but Democrats blocked it. Now, Republicans hope to attach it as the last-minute amendment the GOP is allowed to offer on the House floor.
