Representatives would mandate that public colleges and universities register as many students as possible, requiring each campus to hire a “Campus Vote Coordinator” to increase turnout.
H.R.1, named the “For the People Act of 2021,” directs each campus to maximize the number of students registered and voting, including providing extra funds to schools that demonstrate “excellence in registering students to vote in elections for public office.”
The provisions of H.R.1 dealing with universities initially appeared in legislation authored by U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Il.).
“The addition of student voting provisions in H.R. 1 will expand access to our democratic process and enfranchise millions of new voters,” said Krishnamoorthi in a statement emailed to The College Fix.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
