Are there any special provisions for voters who live in assisted living facilities who wish to vote by mail and want someone other than a family member to take their vote to the SOE office?

Thank you for joining us, everyone. We will take questions after Justice Quince speaks. Please place them in the chat box and I will pose them to her after her presentation.

They are only targeting VBM. If they were truly sincere about wanting to improve election security, why would they not require every voter to register anew for every election?

They want to prevent people from voting. Certain people.
