Kamala Claims Laws that Ban Voting Drop Boxes Are ‘Un-Democratic’ and ‘Un-American’

‘We are not bystanders in this ongoing attack on democracy’

TRANSCRIPT:

HARRIS: “While so-called leaders claim we should return the issue of reproductive freedom to the voters in the states, these same extremist so-called leaders are passing laws to make it intentionally more difficult for people to vote. Return it to the states, let the voters there decide. While laws are being passed to ban drop boxes and restrict early voting. Laws that are making it illegal to give food and water to people who are standing in line, sometimes for hours, to vote. Un-democratic laws. Un-American laws. Earlier this month, our President, standing outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, made clear and I’ll quote. ‘We are not powerless in the face of these threats. We are not bystanders in this ongoing attack on democracy.”
