Andrew Yang


FROM THE CANDIDATE

“I believe in restoring federal voting rights to all formerly incarcerated people,” Yang told The Post. “They served their time, and they are citizens; they should be able to vote.”

FROM THE CAMPAIGN

Election Day should be a federal holiday, but that doesn’t go far enough, as it doesn’t ensure economic motivations won’t keep people from voting. On top of making that day a holiday, we need to implement tax breaks for companies that pay their workers for the time taken off to vote.”

When you turn the legal voting age (now 18), all American citizens should be automatically enrolled to vote. Upon interacting with a government agency (e.g., the DMV), information would be passed along to the relevant state voting board unless a person opts out of being enrolled to vote.”

The residents of Washington, DC, should be afforded the same representation as other Americans, and it should be admitted as a State. To resolve any constitutional issues, an area of land containing the important federal buildings could be carved out and defined as the capital/Washington, DC.”

“I will gladly overturn Citizens United and return the American government to its people.”

via Campaign Website

“The easiest way to do this is to provide Americans with publicly funded vouchers they can use to donate to politicians that they support. Every American gets $100 a year to give to candidates, use it or lose it. These Democracy Dollars would, by the sheer volume of the US population, drown out the influence of mega-donors. It has been used in Seattle to great effect, and we can take their program national to move towards publicly funded elections.”

FROM THE COVERAGE

In response to possible voting conveniences, such as an Election Day holiday, mail-in ballots and extended early voting, Yang told The Post, “Yes to all. It should be much easier to vote.”
