Honest, transparent and secure elections remain the cornerstone of our Constitutional Republic.
Sadly, by unilaterally implementing automatic voter registration, Gov. Shapiro has once again demonstrated his ignorance of the entire electoral process and his inability to work with the Legislature as required by the Pennsylvania Constitution.
Circumventing the Legislature – and the will of the people – is a blatant act of defiance against our Constitutional Republic.
It bypasses the checks and balances that are in place to safeguard the interests of all citizens.
The Pennsylvania Constitution makes it crystal clear that any time government is forcibly compelling the people to do something – in this case registering online to vote through PennDOT – the rule of law must be followed to the letter.
The governor’s automatic voter registration scheme amounts to the rigging of the process to favor thoughtless and even accidental registration in the name of ‘democracy.’
Any laws made unilaterally through executive orders – without the full scrutiny and debate that this committee and the legislature are obligated to provide – are the work of tyrants.
