MI House approves voting machine bills
The state House voted on Tuesday to outlaw hooking voting machines up to the internet while ballots are being tabulated.
The legislation triggered a heated debate.
Democrats say this bill is not needed because voting machines are not connected to the internet while votes are counted.
Republican Representative Matt Hall led hearings last year on the elections.
“If this bill doesn’t do anything because they’re not doing this, then what’s the big deal?
“Bills like these continue us down a destructive path in planting seeds of doubt about our election process.
Democratic Representative Matt Koleszar.
“Donald Trump lost. It’s time to move on.”
Democrats say the legislation also sets the stage for restrictions that would make it harder to vote and disguising it as “election security.”
