Hillary Clinton Pushes Mail-In Voting: 'We Need To Act Now'
Failed presidential candidate desperately scrambles for voting reform
Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has reiterated her calls for voting reform as members of her party eagerly pursue universal mail-in voting.
Clinton said the United States needs to “act now” to ensure citizens can “safely cast a ballot in November."
“GOP officials and conservative jurists forced Wisconsin voters yesterday to choose between risking their lives to vote and being disenfranchised. It’s unconscionable,” she said.
“We need to act now to make sure every citizen can safely cast a ballot in November,” she added:

Clinton has repeatedly signaled her support of mail-in voting, urging it to be “the norm going forward.”
She also touted the reforms presented by her former campaign attorney Marc Elias, who is challenging the existing voting method by dropping lawsuits across the US:

Elias is also promoting curbside voting, “vote anywhere” rules, and ballot harvesting.
The method was also included in Nancy Pelosi's own version of the last coronavirus relief measure.
Elias outlined his vision in a piece for The Atlantic as reported by Breitbart:
“There is no question that voting by mail is an important part of the solution. It mitigates the problems of long lines and fosters social distancing. But the specific rules used to implement vote by mail may determine whose vote is counted and whose is not,” he continued, listing four mail-in voting “safeguards,” including free or prepaid postage and the ability of “community organizations” to “help collect and deliver voted, sealed ballots.”
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is pushing the Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act of 2020 (NDEBA), a bill she introduced last month which would make “no-excuse absentee vote-by-mail” a universal reality:
What's happening at polling locations across Wisconsin right now is outrageous. We cannot continue to ignore the threat that #COVID19 has on our elections.— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) April 7, 2020
We must plan ahead for Nov. & pass my bill to keep all Americans safe by expanding #VoteByMail & extending early voting.
Remember this. Remember this and call your state & federal officials. Are they supporting election reform? Do they believe in the right to vote? Are they helping us pass my bill with @RonWyden to ensure safe vote by mail and early voting at polling locations across the country? https://t.co/LRQOlIJ2Tn— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) April 7, 2020
Meanwhile, Several progressive groups funded by billionaire globalist George Soros are pushing the Democrats' scheme to introduce mail-in voting ahead of this year's elections.
Neon nettle reported Soros' organizations are on the front lines of a campaign to introduce a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election.
The groups advocating for the push are citing fears that the COVID-19 pandemic makes it too dangerous for the public to vote in person.
