NEWS:

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans support the care and sustainability of our environment. Their focus is putting that regulating power into the hands of the states instead of the federal government and EPA. They also support all forms of clean energy use- including coal and natural gas. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats support strengthening of the EPA and federal legislation. They also focus on proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source source


FOR

The Census is a major talking point because it is being held the same year as an election. There were concerns that a question about citizenship would make immigrants reluctant to turn in their census forms, which would potentially reduce seats for immigrant heavy states. source

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

FOR Democrats

The Supreme Court has ruled in a 5-4 decision that the U.S. government cannot add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.


FOR

Voting

There are various aspects to voting that are in contention. Two popular topics are securing the ballots and if a popular vote should replace electoral votes.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Against Popular vote. Republicans support greater transparency, stronger security, and a paper ballot. They strongly oppose a popular vote because they feel it would make ballot boxes and technology more vulnerable to exploitation. source

FOR Democrats

For popular vote. Democrats support further funding of HAVA and updating equipment to support more secure paper ballots. They believe everyone has a right to vote, including people who have already served their time for past legal transgressions. There is also a movement to push for a National Popular Vote instead of an electoral vote because it is more in line with the voice of those voting. source
