    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 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
