After HR 1, Another Threat to Election Integrity Looms

With national attention rightfully focused on the so-called For the People Act (HR 1) — the Left’s ongoing attempt to force upon the states election rules designed to benefit Democrats — an executive order related to election processes was quietly signed by President Biden. While the sweeping power grab of HR 1 is certainly cause for alarm, this new Executive Order, EO 14019, should be equally troubling. The public — and the press — can’t let this order slip through the cracks.

The executive order, titled “Promoting Access to Voting,” commands the head of every federal agency (there are more than 600 currently listed on, to submit to the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy a plan outlining the steps their agency will take to “promote voter registration and voter participation.” What makes this order so alarming are the specific efforts federal agencies are commanded to focus on in order to achieve its overly broad mandate, and to whom the agency heads must report.
