“in charge of soliciting strategies from federal agencies to produce “relevant information” on expanded voting registration procedures”
In January, the Biden administration brought in former national security adviser Susan Rice to promote racial justice and equity.
Now Biden put Rice in charge of expanding mail-in voting.

Biden Puts Susan Rice in Charge of Effort to Expand Vote by Mail
President Joe Biden put controversial former national security adviser Susan Rice in charge of directing hundreds of federal agencies and departments to expand access to mail-in voting.
Biden signed an executive order in March that put Rice, now the assistant to the president for domestic policy, in charge of soliciting strategies from federal agencies to produce “relevant information” on expanded voting registration procedures. Federal agencies must submit to Rice “a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation” within 200 days under the terms of the order.
“Agencies shall consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process,” the order states. “The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation.”
This is the most telling passage:
It requires agencies to distribute registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms, as well as to assist any applicants in completing the forms. It also pushes agencies to allow “approved, nonpartisan third-party organizations and State officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises.”
Democrats had great success with mail-in voting in the 2020 election. Naturally, they’re trying to expand their efforts. And like all Democrat initiatives, anyone who objects will be accused of racism.
We shouldn’t be surprised by any of this. Rice started laying the groundwork for this effort right after joining the Biden administration. This Reuters report is from January 26th:
White House adviser Rice says voting rights a ‘real concern’, ballot access must be expanded
White House adviser Susan Rice said on Tuesday voting rights are a “real concern” and the United States should expand access to the ballot.
Rice also said the White House would work with Congress on legislation to address voting rights and that she expects President Joe Biden to address the matter later in the day.
“It’s a matter of real concern because we ought to be in the business of encouraging and enabling all Americans who are eligible to vote, to be able to vote,” Rice told a White House briefing.
Republicans are trying to debate policy while Democrats are trying to make it impossible for Republicans to win elections.
