AG Barr has to stop being so timid. You are the TOP COP!
It is time to clean out the spark plugs. Surely, everyone knows what we went through in 2016 with the radical Democrats and since then.
AG Bill Barr was on TV with Mark Levin and was discussing the Federal election and voting rights.
According to the rules for Federal voting, it states:
There are only three ways to vote – early voting by going through a process and having the vote sent to your mailing address or early voting by going to the place that is set up for that purpose and, lastly, voting on election day and going to the legal voting area and voting in person.
Harvesting votes is illegal and means prison time.
No mayor or governor is able to change that and that is what these Democrat officials are doing – trying to mess up the election by harvesting votes, causing confusion, and cheat.
What is the purpose of the radical Democrats challenge – they are using third world tactics to cause confusion and harvesting of votes.
Since Barr is the TOP COP, he should go on TV and state those rules. Any vote that is mailed to your home without processing it legally is not legal and is not a vote that can be counted. Plain and simple.
It is Barr’s job to enforce the law.
Since this is a Federal election, President Trump should issue a blanket lawsuit that anything used outside of the rules of voting is not a legal vote.

THE NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION ACT OF 1993
Congress enacted the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (also known as the “NVRA” and the “Motor Voter Act”), to enhance voting opportunities for every American. The Act has made it easier for all Americans to register to vote and to maintain their registration.
The NVRA allows the Department of Justice to bring civil actions in federal court to enforce its requirements. The Act also gives the responsibility to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to provide States with guidance on the Act, to develop a national mail voter registration form, and to compile reports on the effectiveness of the Act. An amendment in the Help America Vote Act of 2002 transferred the FEC’s responsibilities under the Act to the Election Assistance Commission.
PROVISIONS OF THE NVRA
In addition to whatever other methods of voter registration which States offer, the Act requires states to provide the opportunity to apply to register to vote for federal elections by three means: Section 5 of the Act requires states to provide individuals with the opportunity to register to vote at the same time that they apply for a driver’s license or seek to renew a driver’s license, and requires the State to forward the completed application to the appropriate state or local election official.
Section 7 of the Act requires states to offer voter registration opportunities at all offices that provide public assistance and all offices that provide state-funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities. Each applicant for any of these services, renewal of services, or address changes must be provided with a voter registration form of a declination form as well as assistance in completing the form and forwarding the completed application to the appropriate state or local election official. Section 6 of the Act provides that citizens can register to vote by mail using mail-in-forms developed by each state and the Election Assistance Commission. Section 8 of the Act also creates requirements for how States maintain voter registration lists for federal elections. The Act deems as timely those valid voter registration applications by eligible applicants submitted to designated state and local officials, or postmarked if submitted by mail, at least 30 days before a federal election. The Act also requires notification of all applicants of whether their voter registration applications were accepted or rejected. The Act requires States to keep voter registration lists accurate and current, such as identifying persons who have become ineligible due to having died or moved outside the jurisdiction. At the same time, the Act requires list maintenance programs to incorporate specific safeguards, e.g., that they be uniform, non-discriminatory, in compliance with the Voting Rights Act, and not be undertaken within 90 days of a federal election. The removal of voters for non-voting or for having moved can only be done after meeting certain requirements provided in the Act. The Act allows for removal of voters from registration lists when they have been convicted of a disqualifying crime or adjudged mentally incapacitated, where such removals are allowed by state law. The NVRA also provides additional safeguards under which registered voters would be able to vote notwithstanding a change in address in certain circumstances. For example, voters who move within a district or a precinct will retain the right to vote even if they have not re-registered at their new address. The NVRA became effective in most states on January 1, 1995. The Act applies to 44 states and the District of Columbia. Section 4(b) of the Act provided that states were exempt from the Act if, as of August 1, 1994, they had no voter registration requirements or had election-day registration at polling places. These six states are Idaho, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. In addition, the Act granted additional time to Arkansas, Vermont, and Virginia to comply because they needed to change their constitutions in order to comply with the Act and maintain a unitary registration system for federal and state elections.
ENFORCEMENT OF THE NVRA
After the NVRA became effective, several states failed to take the steps necessary to comply with the law; several of them also challenged the constitutionality of the Act. Beginning within a month of the Act’s effective date, the Department responded by filling a series of lawsuits requiring these states to comply with the Act’s procedures as well as defending its constitutionality.
Those states involved in the first round of cases included California, Illinois, Michigan, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New York, South Carolina, Vermont, and Virginia. The Department’s litigation addressed each state’s refusal, often on constitutional grounds, to implement provisions of the Act. As a result of these cases and actions filed by private individuals, the Act’s constitutionality was established and states were ordered to comply with the Act’s requirements.
Since that time, the United States has continued to bring litigation to ensure compliance with all facets of the Act.
