WASHINGTON - A voter initiative led by Michelle Obama announced support Monday for making it easier for people to register to vote and cast ballots during the coronavirus pandemic.
When We All Vote, a nonpartisan voting initiative, says Americans should have greater access to voting by mail, early in-person voting and online voter registration.
The announcement follows last weeks primary election in Wisconsin, where thousands of people waited hours in line - without protective gear and in defiance of orders to stay home - after the state Supreme Court overturned the governors order to postpone the vote as more than a dozen other states have done because of the pandemic. Thousands of other Wisconsin voters, unwilling to risk their health, stayed home.
When We All Votes announcement also comes amid vociferous opposition by President Donald Trump to mail-in voting.
The former first lady, a co-chair of the organization, said expanding access to vote-by-mail, online voter registration and early voting are long overdue critical steps for this moment.
Americans should never have to choose between making their voices heard and keeping themselves and their families safe, she said in a statement. There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country: making the democracy we all cherish more accessible, and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life.
Mrs. Obamas role with the group is her most high-profile effort since she left the White House in early 2017.
Trump has claimed without evidence that expanding mail-in voting will increase voter fraud. Despite his assertions, several GOP state officials are moving forward with plans for mail-in voting in their states.

Never letting a crisis go to waste. Just like Saul A. taught them!
Why don’t they let all Canadians vote in our elections, too. I mean, 1/2 of the Mexicans do anyway....
...remind me again how many *millions* of mail-in ballots were lost in 2016 and 2018.
Hey what could go wrong we get a rat in every level of government in including the presidency for centuries to come, nothing to see here
Each fraudulent vote disenfranchises another citizen. I thought Democrats were supposed to believe in democracy.
Run with dat ball Big Mike...
Does anyone really, really, really give a rats ass what any Odorko thinks?
We need voter ID. Any voting change proposed by Democrats is done solely to benefit their party. Remember that.
The left is on the move, even with Trump at the helm.
Those three highlighted words say it all
... says Americans should have greater access to voting by mail, early in-person voting and online voter registration.
Nothing more than more opportunities for fraud.
Creating more opportunities for fraud is how they want to win, since they cant win elections by just getting more people to vote for them.
More options to vote - more ways to cheat.
The Wookie promotes Africanization via voter fraud
Whoever does not vote himself, herself, or otherself, will be presumed to have given their proxy to us.
Let’s see . . . I remember that these same people wanted all these radical voting changes BEFORE this Covidis thingy. So what has changed? This is not news. It should not be repeated in the media.
Let’s break it down. All democRAT Votes count 3 times. Republican votes don’t count at all.
Lot of femininity traits in that there body.
