I am glad to see my modification handed which might permit North Dakota to proceed our long-standing apply. My modification is an instance of why native management of electoral legislation is one of the simplest ways to conduct elections. No state is similar, and a one-size-fits-all coverage would not work for North Dakota or every other state.
HR 1 will nationalize the electoral system and provides extra energy to politicians.
