  •  It could make it an offense (7+ / 0-)

    for any election official to prevent an eligible voter from voting or for not counting their vote - and fine officials if waiting lines exceed 1 hour.

    It could empower the FEC to oversee not just campaign contributions, but all constituency changes, voting arrangements and vote counting arrangements for Federal elections to ensure they are adequate to service the voting population, and equitable across the board.  It could standardize early voting and mail in voting procedures and generally make it easier to vote - perhaps ultimately over the internet!.

    It is possible the FEC could be empowered to do these things by Act of Congress and without the need for a Constitutional change, but I am not a lawyer, and we would probably have to change the composition of the SCOTUS first - to prevent it from ruling that States had a right to gerrymander, suppress, and miscount votes!
