Effect of New Voting Rights Bill to Texas

Published

on

Even after getting a 50-50 split vote, Democrats are still finding ways to push for their federal reform on elections and voting.

On Tuesday, a new bill is on the way to be pushed more, which could greatly affect Texas and other nearing counties and states. The bill introduces changes on;

  1. Texas methodology on registering to vote
  2. In-person and drop off ballots
  3. Voting by mail

What are the provisions in the New Bill?

The proposed name of the bill is the Freedom to Vote Act. Democrats proposed the bill in an attempt to revolutionize the old ways of voting in various states. The provisions are the following;

– Making Election Day a public holiday

– All states be offered real-time and automatic online voter registration

– Mandated to bring a broad set of identification cards and documents, be in digital or physical form

How is this different from the current Texas method of voter registration? To this date, you cannot apply online to register to vote. All registrations must be mailed and must be done thirty days before an election for voter eligibility.

The New Bill states that voters can show more forms of ID, unlike in the current one, you only need to bring one of the seven acceptable IDs in Texas. This bill’s accessibility to drop boxes for voter ballots is better than Abbott’s policy of limiting Texas counties to only one drop-off location for voters.

According to Texas House Representative Turner, “Texas House Democrats have been calling on Congress to take decisive action to protect voters from the GOP’s attacks on our democracy. With the passage of Senate Bill 1 in Texas, we need the U.S. Senate to act more than ever before.”

The statement was issued due to Abbott’s massive efforts in passing Senate Bill 1, which challenges voting rules and initiatives implemented in the Democrat-dominated Harris country. Abbott highly challenges the new bill.

On the Caspian shore of Russia, thousands of dead seals have washed up

Published

on

Russian authorities inspected the coastline.

Officials announced on Sunday that over 2,500 dead seals had been discovered near the Caspian Sea coast of Russia.

Authorities in the Russian province of Dagestan stated that the cause of the shocking mass deaths was unknown and that they believed it was probably due to natural causes.

The number of dead seals discovered off the coast on Saturday initially appeared to be 700, but later rose to 2,500, according to the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

The Caspian Environmental Protection Center’s Zaur Gapizov stated in a statement that the seals had probably been dead for a few weeks. He claimed that there was no evidence that they had been killed or caught in fishing nets.

The dead seals were thought to have perished due to natural causes.

According to a statement posted on the Telegram messaging app by the Dagestan natural resources ministry, samples taken from the seals’ internal organs did not contain any traces of pollution.

A North Caucasus fisheries official was quoted by the business newspaper Kommersant as suggesting that the seals may have perished due to protracted storms, although the news website Fontanka.ru suggested that the mass deaths may have been brought on by a natural gas leak from the sea’s abundant resources.

The Dagestan ministry stated after this incident that there was still a stable number of Caspian seals in the region, “ranging from 270,000 to 300,000.”

According to RIA, the seals are at the top of the food chain and have no natural enemies as adults. They can grow to a length of more than 1.6 metres (5.2 feet) and a weight of up to 100 kilogrammes (200 pounds).

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

man who killed 70 years old Massachusetts couple over a barking dog was found in Florida.

Police stated that they had apprehended the fugitive suspected of fatally murdering an elderly Massachusetts couple during a dispute about a noisy dog in Florida.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office reported that Christopher Keeley, 27, was apprehended Thursday at 8:20 p.m. in Miami Beach, approximately 1,500 miles from the Marshfield home where he is accused of beating Carl and Vicki Mattson, both 70, to death.

The couple and Keeley allegedly got into a fight about a barking dog, according to the police.

According to court documents obtained by CBS, the alleged brute had been staying in the Mattson’s Gotham Hill Drive house as a courtesy to a family member but had just been ordered to leave.

According to Keeley’s arrest on a warrant as an out-of-state fugitive, Miami-Dade County jail records show this. It was unclear at first if Keeley had hired a lawyer.

 

Massachusetts couple

 

Questions were not immediately answered by representatives of the Massachusetts State Police and the Miami-Dade Police Department. It was impossible to speak with a district attorney’s office representative for Plymouth County right away.

A dog that had been reported missing earlier was also discovered dead inside the home, according to the DA. It’s unclear to whom the dog belonged or how it passed away.

This would not be the first time Keeley had turned to murder after a dispute.

In a dispute over a phone charger when he was 18 years old, Keeley broke his grandmother’s vehicle window, according to The Patriot Ledger. He was accused of intentionally causing damage to a vehicle.

According to Keeley, he attacked the couple after a dispute about a barking dog.

At least two further significant run-ins with the law involved Keeley. According to the publication, he was detained in 2016 at the age of 21 for organising and carrying out a group beating of a man with autism before snatching his cellphone and wallet. According to reports, a court in Massachusetts deemed Keeley “to be dangerous,” and he was subsequently given an 18-month prison term.

Keeley was recently charged with narcotics possession after it was claimed that he was found driving about with marijuana and Xanax. According to court documents obtained by The Ledger, he was charged with drug offences.
