De Blasio Calls For National Law to Stop GOP From Suppressing Voter Involvement

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said we need a “national strategy” on voting law to stop the “many efforts that have been made by Republicans to repress voter involvement.”

De Blasio said, “We have democracy problem. We have declining voter turn out. Secretary Clinton put forward the notion that we need a national strategy to get people involved. Obviously to address the many efforts that have been made by Republicans to repress voter involvement.”

He continued, “She’s saying the right thing about a national vision. We have to get to voting across the country, we have to simplify  registration across the country . Obviously  get rid of these efforts to repress voter involvement. But I don’t think New York City or New York State are doing well enough either. Our elections are governed by state law for a long time I believe we need to make fundamental series of reforms. Lets face it historically a lot of people in the political mass have tried to discourage voter involvement.”
