Democrats Reviewing Whether To Overturn A Certified Iowa U.S. House Election
The House Administration Committee is reviewing a challenge brought by defeated Iowa Democrat Rita Hart against freshman Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, who won the race by just six votes. In a legal brief sent to the Committee, the attorneys for Rep. Miller-Meeks argue that since their client has the certification of election under Iowa law, the matter is closed. The attorneys for Hart argue that 22 ballots which were tossed out should have been counted, which would have resulted in their client winning the election by nine votes. There is currently no timeline for wrapping up the Committee’s investigation.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
