Senate voted 51-49, short of the 60 votes needed for the bill to proceed
VP Kamala Harris said: ‘We’re not going to give up’
The Freedom to Vote Act would have allowed same-day registration and made Election Day a holiday across the country (SURELY NO IMPROPRIETY WOULD HAPPEN WITH SAME DAY REGISTRATION RIGHT ???!.!..
Republicans objected to national control of state elections
The issue is a key dividing line after President Trump said last year’s election was stolen from him by fraud
Republican senators filibustered a major voting bill on Wednesday, blocking Democrats’ plans to allow same-day voter registration and to make Election Day a holiday.
It is the third time Democrats have tried to overhaul voting laws this year and the third time Republicans blocked them.
The issue has become one of the key battle lines in American politics since then President Trump claimed he had been robbed of election victory last year by voter fraud.
Vice President Kamala Harris was present for the vote and said Democrats would keep pushing for reform.
‘We’re not going to give up,’ she said.
‘We’re not deterred, but there’s still a lot of work to do, and I think it’s really a sad day.’
Before the vote, President Biden warned Senate Republicans that democracy was at stake.
‘The sacred right to vote is under unrelenting assault across the country — and the Senate needs to take action to protect it,’ he said.
‘Senate Republicans need to allow a debate and let there be a vote on the Freedom to Vote Act. Democracy — the very soul of America — is at stake.’ ( AND THIS STATEMENT COULDNT BE MORE TRUE)
