'Voting is under assault both from a systemic nationwide campaign of voter suppression,' Pelosi claimed

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warned that voting was “under assault” from the coronavirus pandemic, arguing the use of voting-by-mail must protect it.

The House speaker said no one should be forced to risk their health by visiting a polling place in person.

“Voting is under assault both from a systemic nationwide campaign of voter suppression and from the coronavirus," Pelosi said.

"The fear of getting sick and not to go to the polls. People should not have to choose between voting and preserving their good health and that of their families," she added.

"Because no matter what you do when you go out, you bring it home. Again, no one should be forced to vote for their health or their vote.”

“In the HEROES Act, we added the balance of what we think we need to have voting at home and to protect the ballot."

Pelosi vowed to 'make sure' her proposals in the coronavirus relief bill, including vote-by-mail, will 'prevail' during negotiations.

"That would be $3.6 billion. A small price to pay for our democracy and the good health of Americans going to the polls," Pelosi continued.

"We will be there to expand vote at home, vote by mail some call it, including no-excuse absentee ballots, same-day registration, and again, having polling places available for those who want to participate in person for whatever reason.”

“This is about the livelihood and life of our democracy."

"Essential to the life of our democracy is removing obstacles of participation to voting," she added.

"And now, even more so now, when voting can be a risk to your health, as we saw demonstrated in Wisconsin.”

"We don’t want anything to stand in the way of the right to vote.”

President Donald Trump warned against the 'very dangerous' mail-in voting in November.

On Thursday, Pelosi vowed to "make sure" her proposals in the coronavirus relief bill, including vote-by-mail, will "prevail" during negotiations.

Pelosi assured host Lawrence O'Donnell during MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” that Democrats will not stand down on their far-left "wish list" of demands.

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump warned against the "very dangerous" mail-in voting in November.

The president highlighted the Democrats' House spending bill which included vote-by-mail:

“Voting by mail is very dangerous because people can grab them; people can take that proxy, sign a name," Trump said.

"They can do all sorts of things, especially harvesting," the president added.

In April, Neon Nettle reported that several progressive groups funded by billionaire globalist George Soros were pushing for mail-in voting.

Along with many Democrats, Soros' organizations are on the front lines of a campaign to introduce a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election.
