Changes to voting laws across the United States
"We have all just lived through an election in which the way many of us voted changed. A lot of Americans voted early in 2020. A lot of Americans voted by mail because of the pandemic. Now across the country, state lawmakers are weighing what our election should look like going forward. Hundreds of bills have been proposed that would restrict voting access. Hundreds of others would expand access, and this is mostly happening along party lines. Republican led states are broadly looking to add voting restrictions, while many Democratic legislatures are exploring expanding access. Well, we have got reporters. From three states with us to give us a glimpse of what is going on in there. Patch. Let me welcome Been Giles from Cage's in Phoenix. Katarina so historic from Iowa Public Radio and Anthony Brooks of W bur in Boston. Welcome all three of your primary Louise. Then I'm gonna let you start. Let's go to Arizona, which along with Georgia are maybe the state getting the most attention. Those two certainly at both swing states, both with total GOP control at the state level and all kinds of bills. That have been proposed. What what is standing out to you in Arizona? So the biggest proposed changes I see are two what's called Arizona's permanent early voting list. That's our super popular mail ballot system. That a clear majority of voters here use and have increasingly been using in years and years and years. So not new in 2020 is what you're saying. Definitely not new. No, This is a very long standing system here. You sign up for it, and you regularly get sent your ballot, So one change would make it to that. That's not permanent anymore. If you don't actually use the early ballot, you get sent before an election for two straight election cycles. You get a notice that you're getting kicked off the list, and you have to respond to that if you don't want to be removed. Democrats here say there were 126,000 voters in that situation who cast about in 2020 after not voting in 2016 or 2018, Arizona's, of course, very competitive state now so That margin. You know, 126,000 voters could matter. There's also another bill that would shrink the amount of time voters have to cast that early ballot and then new voter I d requirements when you mailed about back or being considered Catarina is any of this sounding familiar. Let's talk about what's going on in Iowa, another Republican controlled state. New restrictions have already been signed into law here. The governor did that on Monday. Ah big changes that early in person Voting and absentee voting will start 20 days before Election Day instead of 29. It was 40 days just four years ago and then deadlines for requesting a melon ballot has been moved up and those ballots have to be returned earlier, so it's really shrinking that time frame. Then in person. Polls will close at eight p.m. instead of nine PM, as they had been before for state and federal elections. Okay. And why do supporters of these changes who we should note are overwhelmingly Republican. Why did they say this is needed? Unlike in Arizona, where Democrats one big races, Republicans in Iowa one pretty much everything and retained full control of the state government. But they have said that these changes are going to help restore Iowans confidence and trust in elections. Here's representative Bobby Kaufman, speaking about the new law. This protects Iowans right to vote, and it adds certainty and security to it. This bill does not suppress one single vote. Of course, we should say that it was Republicans themselves, who created this distrust by questioning election results with false claims of widespread voter fraud. This is something these false claims have been repeated in debates in Iowa over the selection bill, and I'd also add that a lawsuit challenging these changes have already been filed. Mary Louise. I'm hearing similar claims from Republicans in Arizona, broadly speaking there, justifying these bills by arguing that voter confidence and the election must be restored. They don't acknowledge that some of them are responsible for sewing that distrust in the first place. Democrats are quick to point that out and are lining up in opposition to these bills. Here's Senator Martine Cassata, speaking about the voter. I d legislation. We hear communities tell us That this will hurt my community, my neighborhood, my vote and the people that look like me and the people that vote like me. This is going to hurt us. Okay, so a taste of the conversation under way there in Arizona and in Iowa, Anthony Brooks. Let's turn to Massachusetts, where you have got a very different story unfolding. Yeah, It's really different. Mary Louise Esso last summer. Here's a bit of background because of the pandemic, Lawmakers approved a temporary vote by mail law and as in other states, Massachusetts saw ah huge jump in voter turnout in the presidential primary and general election with with relatively few problems. So now there's a push by Democrats who control the state legislature by big numbers. To make vote by mail permanent. So here's Bill Galvin, the Democratic secretary of state, who's a big proponent of this last year test of us in many ways, it was a very challenging year. But at the same time he showed us what we could do. And I think the result was is that we had a very successful election cycle on. We want to make sure that progress is not lost. Is this controversial in Massachusetts are Republicans. They're fired up in opposition and saying similar things as we were hearing from Republicans and other states. Well, there are concerns. I mean, one concern is that any law to make mail in voting permanent will have to include significant new funding for cities in town clerks to do training and to process the big increase in mail. Balance. But in terms of pushback, Republicans have questioned why mail in voting is necessary now that it appears that the pandemic is lessening with vaccines being distributed. But even the moderate Republican governor, Charlie Baker, has said that he would favor making the law permanent. So I think chances are very good. That vote by mail is going to become permanent in Massachusetts and in the months ahead. I do want to know this debate is playing out at the national level, of course, as well. Big Fight looming in Congress over HR one. This huge bill, backed by Democrats that would expand voting access would curtail Jerry Mandarin would have something to say about some of these changes that are being proposed in at the state level and just quick lightning round for each of you. Maybe Anthony you first. How how much attention is HR one getting is this part of the conversation in Massachusetts? It's part of the conversation because our congressional delegation is all Democratic. It's very much behind HR one. But my sense is that no matter what happens in Washington, Massachusetts move toward a permanent Vote by mail legislation is coming, no matter what and Banner, Catarina, where you're so in Arizona, I think Democrats are going to make a big push for our U. S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kirsten Cinema. Get HR one through to undo a lot of what's happening at the state level. That means there's gonna be pressure on cinema to abolish the filibuster. If that's what it takes, because HR one might be the only way to get around some of this state laws that Republicans are certainly gonna pass here and are expected to be signed into law by the governor. And in Iowa Republicans are going to be more focused on this pending lawsuit that they

This build on the success we have in last year's presidential election, where we had a record turnout knowledge in the election, but in the primary and the presidential primary Plan would also allow voters casting their ballots in person to register to vote at their polling place, and currently, state law requires voters to register at least 20 days before Election Day in order to vote. Bill will be filed later this month. At a board of governors meeting of the Postal Service today. Postmaster General Luis de Joy confirmed that the Postal Service failed to keep up with demand during the busy holiday season. Throughout the peak season, the Postal Service face multiple challenges. This included significant employee shortages as a result of the covert 19 pandemic, multiple winter storms in the northeast capacity issues with their lips and trucking. And a historic high level of mail and package volumes. But there is a growing chorus of those who say the new administration should remove the postmaster general. They accuse him Lewis to joy playing politics. We'll have more coming up. You.

All right, Charlie. Thank you so much, sir. Earlier this week, NASDAQ CEO Dina Friedman participate in the Bloomberg the Year ahead virtual event on and she was asked about the trading that we've seen this week she talked about specifically have a NASDAQ handles potential market disruptions from Social Media. Check it out. He basically has some tools that track changes in chatter on social media. We think that there's something unusual or even worse, nefarious going on. We can hold the stock and then we will contact the company. Make sure there's no news. Right. That was again NASDAQ CEO Adina Freeman. So what they do when there's you know, social media chatter, which we know Tim has been a big part of the run apps that we've seen in game Stop. There have been conversations going on for weeks. Yeah, yeah, there have. I mean, it makes sense given that this is, you know, I guess what? What's what's kind of surprising about this whole story. Carol is this stuff was happening back in the 19 nineties message boards, right? The difference is, I think the APS and the commission free trading and that you're allowed to do now, but I mean, people have been have been talking Talking their book for since books existed. Exactly. It happens all the time. So let's get back to Jennifer Shop. She's director financial regulation studies over it. Three Cato Institute's Center for monetary and Financial Alternatives. She's also former director. The department enforcement at the federal Still with us on the phone from Washington, D. C. What do you make of what you just heard from? NASDAQ CEO Dina Friedman about how they deal with talk about Social media? And Tim's, right? I mean, Go back to, you know the dot com bubble. I mean, people were talking about things. What's different? What's new? What do we need to do? You know, I agree with 10. This is this is not new. So to speak on Di don't fault now, Jack it all for keeping an eye on social media, particularly where There might be misinformation or in Federer information has been leaked. That's such great things for the for the exchange is to be keeping an eye on to see if there is a need to pause. Trading where I walk away a little bit is NASDAQ statement yesterday that they would have Up trading here Force extended period of time. Um, kind of least implicitly supporting some of the 30 day, type Six suspensions of trading that Secretary of State of Massachusetts Bill Galvin was supporting I think that gets in the way of actual market function. And this type of discussions trading talking your book. This is normal. Even if the outcome here might don't look no look normal at the moment. Well, that's what that was exactly My next question to you, Jennifer. I mean, our mock our markets functioning normally here is this what's supposed to be happening? I think the answer is yes. I think that There's concern because there's a bubble butt. But bubbles are a part of Markets have been a part of markets since their inception. We don't need to talk about tulips to know that right? I n the overall market. If you look at it, I mean today it's you know, it's not like it's bringing down the overall market. And I do wonder if if we are ignoring that, and we shouldn't be That the fact of the market rose today when I was pulling down a little bit is a sign that something new business well, I'm saying that something isn't that you're seeing, you know, a pretty significant correction and Gamestop today and yet the rest of the market's doing okay. It's actually rally. I don't think there's any indication here that we have sort of a contagious event right on, But there's any sort of larger market instability problem, I think well functioning correctly. Soon. It's just kind of crazy. So how does the story end? I mean, is this something that we're going to continue to see? Because Wall Street that's on Reddit is a thing, and there's so much interest around it. Or are you just gonna be a flash in the pan? That's an interesting question, and I think some of that's going to play out in how badly some of these individual investors get hurt when the stock comes down. On by. I think the stock is going to come down. I don't think that's a controversial position, and I think that individuals are going to lose money here. Um, is not a controversial position. To the extent that people really get burned. I think we might see a less excitement for jumping into another bubble in the future. But sometimes I think people are having fun here either fun just for fun steak or fun to stick it to Wall Street. And I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of this, at least in the short term. It's interesting because I do feel like that. There's a lot of big trading houses and firms that investment firms who often talk about you know what we need to, you know, figure out ways for alternative investments for it to be much more accessible to kind of the little guy and retail investors. So there is that argument in one hand, but as soon as kind of retail investors figure out Shadow, I guess. Game the market, but it doesn't look like they're breaking the law. You know, everybody kind of gets upset. And I would point out that hypocrisy. Um I'm pretty solidly in favor of giving retail investors the opportunity both in the alternative investments front and here when you do make sure people are educated. And understand the risks of the markets that they're playing in. And those risks are real. Giving them the opportunity to try. I think we should be permitting that on all fronts. Yeah, I got to say, um I'm just looking at the amount of the questions and things that are coming in on my twitter feed, because this'll is really resonating with a lot of people to him. Yeah, it is. And look, I think there's a big part of this story is about the little guy versus you know, with the big guys and then, like sticking it to the man and sticking it to those hedge funds. Well, somebody treats me, you know, So should we have a law that bans people from going to Vegas so we can protect them from losing money like it's just There's no you're looking at. No. I mean, I don't know the answer. This is like uncharted territory in some ways. Yeah, exactly. Um, Jennifer, Thank you so much really, really enjoyed that. Jennifer Shelf. She's director of financial regulation studies over at the Cato Institute Center for monetary and financial alternative.
