“Democrats are faced with a choice on voting rights: Go big or go small”

Jon Ward:

Voting experts who are concerned that the United States is heading for a constitutional crisis — and potential political violence — are warning that Democrats need to shift gears and prioritize a more narrow set of reforms that they believe give the country a better chance at averting catastrophe.

“Democrats should not try to go it alone in preserving free and fair elections,” Richard Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California, Irvine, wrote in the New York Times.

“Flying solo is a big mistake. Democrats cannot stop the subversion of 2024 election results alone, particularly if Democrats do not control many statehouses and either house of Congress when Electoral College votes are counted on Jan. 6, 2025.”
