The biggest problem with the system of casting and counting votes in the U.S. is neither voter fraud nor voter suppression. It’s lack of trust in a system that has shown very little of either. It’s an issue Senator Manchin (D., W. Va.) rightly highlighted in explaining his own opposition to enacting sweeping national changes to election law on a partisan basis. The only thing that could be worse for public trust in elections would be to enact sweeping national changes to election law on a partisan basis after changing the rules to do it. Which is, naturally, President Biden’s plan.
