GOP vs. absentee voting (again)
Last week, Republicans killed several bills making absentee voting easier in a predawn subcommittee meeting, but Del. Lionell Spruill’s HB 2911, to allow persons aged 65 years or vote absentee, managed to slip by before a few of them arrived.
Today, the bill came before the full House Privileges and Elections committee. In the video below, subcommitee chair Del. Chris Jones summarizes the bill, Del. Jim Scott questions if they should be considering it with so many members out of the room, and Del. Rob Bell (around the 2:00 mark) expresses his annoyance that it ever got out of subcommittee in the first place.
