Justice Department to Monitor 64 Voting Jurisdictions in 24 States Biden DOJ Unleashing Election Monitors in These 24 States

After President Joe Biden attacked state election reforms and asserted, “democracy is on the poll,” his administration’s Justice Division introduced Monday that it might be sending election observers to 24 states. 

These embody Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Florida and different states that applied election integrity measures Biden and different Democrats have characterised as “Jim Crow 2.0.” 

The Justice Department officials can even be in a number of  battleground states with closely-contested races akin to Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

“The Justice Division introduced at present its plans to observe compliance with federal voting rights legal guidelines in 64 jurisdictions in 24 states for the Nov. 8, 2022 basic election. Because the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Civil Rights Division has usually monitored elections within the area in jurisdictions across the nation to guard the rights of voters,” the Justice Division introduced in a press launch on Monday. “The Civil Rights Division can even take complaints from the general public nationwide relating to potential violations of the federal voting rights legal guidelines via its name heart.”

The DOJ can be monitoring Alaska, California, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. 

In 2021, the Justice Division launched lawsuits towards the states of Arizona, Georgia and Texas alleging that the states’ new election reform legal guidelines would result in voter suppression. The division has not too long ago resisted publicly releasing its strategic plan for implementing a Biden govt order to spice up voter particiation.

In Arizona, Justice Division screens will likely be in Maricopa County, Navajo County, Pima County, Pinal County, and Yavapai County. 

In Georgia, Justice Division screens will likely be in Cobb County, Fulton County and Gwinnett County. 

In Texas, Justice Division screens will likely be in Dallas County, Harris County, and Waller County.
