House Passes Election Reform and Voting Rights Bill

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Wednesday night, the House of Representatives passed a voting and campaign bill on a near party-line vote of 220 to 210. It Includes mandatory automatic voter registration and restored voting rights for people with completed felony sentences, and would also allow sworn statements from citizens to confirm their identity if they are unable to produce an ID. The bill, titled the "For the People Act," will likely face opposition in the Senate, where it will need at least 10 Republican votes to survive an expected filibuster.
