Voting is a Right Not a Mandate

 

The Rule of Law is the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution declares in the following Amendments that “the rights of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude, sex, failure to pay poll tax or other tax, or age (18 years or older).”

 

It is the responsibility of individual citizens to register to vote in their respective districts where they live.

It is the right of registered voters to exercise their right to vote in an election.

Voters unable to vote in person may request an absentee ballot.

Registered voters may choose to vote in person or by absentee ballot.

States cannot mandate voters use mail in ballots as voting is a right to be exercised by US citizens.

Absentee ballots can be mailed to the voting precinct or hand delivered to a voting collection site.

 

State and local precincts have the responsibility to secure, verify eligibility and determine legality of every ballot and to accurately count all ballots received at each county voting precinct and transmit those tallies to state voting officials in a timely manner as prescribed by law.
