The Democrats have succeeded in securing a spot on the November ballot for their “Fair Elections” initiative. A few points in this initiative are same day voting, automatic, and online voter registration, and allows for voting via cell phones. This proposition is backed by California billionaires and is just the beginning of their plan. We must stop it.
