    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The regulations established by the CFPD are mostly seen as hindering the business of banking in general. The GOP focuses on regulations that protect and regulate consumer support, but otherwise prefer to return power back to the institutions. source

    FOR Democrats

    Oppose such large concentrations of financial power in the hands of a few banks, especially after incidents like Wells Fargo and the financial crisis of 2008. Dems support strengthening the CFPD, and there is a push to allow post offices to provide financial services. source


    AGAINST

    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
