        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

          FOR

          LGBTQ

          The LBGTQ community faces discrimination by some businesses and institutions based on traditional family ideals and religious views. These views have continued to evolve rapidly in the past decade, and there is a shift toward bipartisan support of protections of LGBTQ individuals among voters. source

          DETAILS:

          AGAINST Republicans

          There is a rise in republican voter interest in protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals. Over half support extra protections to avoid discrimination in workplaces, businesses, and attaining housing. The protection of businesses and institutions based on religious grounds is weakening as religious views evolve. source

          FOR Democrats

          Democrats feel a person’s identity should not interfere with their ability to work, vote, marry, attain housing, or other basic life tasks. They focus on equal rights in all areas of life, and do not feel religious beliefs should be a factor when businesses choose to hire or serve an individual. source

          LOBBYISTS:


            AGAINST

            Immigration

            The laws regarding how our country works with people who want to enter, both temporarily and for citizenship.

            DETAILS:

            FOR Republicans

            Republicans support immigrants entering the country, but they feel it is government responsibility to first look out for American families and workers. Then those who enter the country legally. Then those who enter the country illegally. They feel current immigration laws should be upheld and ‘sanctuary cities’ should be denied federal aid. source

            AGAINST Democrats

            Feel the immigration system is broken and needs reform. They focus on ending the 3-10-and permanent bars that prevent immigrants from attaining legal permits and citizenship. Also, they support looser restrictions to aid refugees fleeing violent or unlivable living conditions in their own country, and to have government assistance programs like the affordable care act available to non-citizens. source
