Proposing Grants To State's Who Implement Voting Reforms
Richmond, VA (1140wrva.com) – Concerned by the three and four hour voting lines seen in some areas of Virginia, U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) is proposing to give state's grants to improve their election systems. The grants would be competitive, going to the states most willing to make reforms.
Warner says the system now amounts to a "21st Century Poll Tax," since people had to miss out on work in order to vote. He says this system, as well as delays in knowing results, should not be the case in this country.
