Demos, an organization that leans to the far left is urging the administration of President Joe Biden to harness the power of federal agencies, such as the United States Postal Service, to create a massive, federalized voter registration campaign.
Demos was founded in 2000 with the mission of ensuring that “American democracy lives up to its promise of justice and equality for everyone.”
As revealed by the organization’s 2019 list of donors, George Soros’s foundation, the Open Societies Foundations, serves as one of the most prominent donors. In addition, actress Barbara Streisand and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters serve as additional prominent donors.
At this juncture in time, Demos is angling for the use of different interactions with federal agencies in order to promote widespread voter registration.
“When [executed effectively], providing voter registration through federal agencies will be a convenient and effective way to serve the public and potentially add millions of eligible, previously [not registered] voters to our voting rolls,” a presentation regarding the organization program declared.
Demos also alleged that its federalized voter registration, which would effectively remove the power of states during the electoral process, will ostensibly “[help] reduce voter participation disparities by race and income.”
The organization claims at least 76 million individuals residing in the United States are not registered to vote, which is precisely why the assistance of Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and Social Security Administration (SSA) are viewed as potential targets for finding new voters, especially voters who align with the views of Demos regarding “disparity.”
“Effective federal agency registration can help millions of additional eligible Americans become registered to vote,” the organization boomed, adding that its efforts would also “reduce registration disparities [based on income] to ensure that all eligible Americans are able to participate in the democratic process.”
Demos reaffirmed its commitment to reinforcing federal power over state power by declaring voter registration via federal agencies “can be especially impactful in programs that provide services, benefits, and public assistance.”
