PIME: Safeguard American Voting Eligibility (SAVE Act). Coming to the floor of the U.S. House.

 

The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE Act) is coming to the floor of the U.S. House, and a vote is expected during the week of July 8. The SAVE Act, if enacted into federal law, will require individuals who register to vote in a federal election to provide documentary proof of U.S. citizenship. It will require states to establish programs to identify and remove noncitizens from their voter rolls. ​To help states do their duties, SAVE ensures that states will have access to federal databases to verify citizenship information.

 

The bill garnered 104 co-sponsors! Now, the timeframe to cosponsor has passed. Five other Representatives did ask to join, but they missed the deadline.  Co-sponsors to call and thank are listed here:


 

The representatives below were notable in their absence, but they may still be encouraged to vote in favor of the bill: John James (R, 10th), Elissa Slotkin (D, 7th), Rashida Tlaib (D, 12th), Tim Walberg (R, 5th), Shri Thanedar (D, 13th), Debbie Dingell (D, 6th), Haley Stevens (D, 11th), Dan Kildee (D, 5th), Hillary Scholten (D, 3rd).


The bill amends the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), which has governed state voter registration since 1993, to require states to obtain in-person documentary proof of U.S. citizenship and identity when registering an individual to vote in a Federal election. It expands the private right of action and introduces criminal penalties for election officials who register noncitizens to vote. Under SAVE, citizens may bring civil suits against election officials who fail to uphold proof of citizenship requirements for Federal elections.


Acceptable forms of documentary proof of citizenship in the SAVE Act include REAL ID, a U.S. passport, an official U.S. military ID card, a valid government-issued photo ID, and other specifically listed documents.


If enacted into law, the SAVE Act will require states to establish a program to remove non-citizens from their existing voter rolls, and it provides states with no-cost access to DHS and Social Security Administration databases.

  

Ryan Walker, Executive VP of Heritage Action states “The SAVE Act puts all of these issues to rest and gives Americans confidence that our elections are on a more even playing field.” Read more 


The Act acknowledges that the Supreme Court's decision in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Ariz., Inc. has limited all the states' ability to require documentary proof of citizenship.


Plus, the SAVE Act aims to address concerns about foreign interference in federal elections.

 

To become law, SAVE must first pass the U.S. House and Senate. Then it will go to the U.S. President’s desk for signature.


What to do now?

 

Contact your Representatives to ensure they VOTE for the SAVE Act.
