Prior to Senate Republicans’ successful filibuster of Democrats’ election overhaul bill (H.R. 1), Senator Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) told CNS News that voters should be required to show identification in order to ensure election integrity
H.R. 1, dubbed by the “For the People Act” by Democrats, would circumvent states’ voter identification laws and give the federal government more power to dictate state election laws.
At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, prior to Senate Democrats’ failed attempt to bring their election-overhaul bill up for a vote, CNS News first asked Senator Cramer, “Should a person provide an ID when they go to purchase alcohol?”
The Senator replied, “Well, assuming it’s not really clear that they are well above age to do so. But, yeah. I think providing, I always loved, I’ve always loved the bars that get, ask everybody for an ID. That way they never run the risk of offending somebody. I always find it heartening, anyway.”
CNS News then asked, “And how about for voting?”
Sen. Cramer responded, “For voting? Yes, I think you should provide an ID for voting.”
