203 Republicans Vote “No” as House Approves Bill to Prevent Stolen Elections

HeadlineSep 22, 2022

The House of Representatives has approved a bill to reform the Electoral Count Act in an effort to prevent a repeat of January 6, 2021. The legislation clarifies that the vice president has no power to overturn the votes cast by the Electoral College. It would also make it harder for lawmakers to object to a state’s electoral votes. Two hundred three House Republicans voted to reject the bill, prompting Democrats to accuse them of siding with insurrectionists. This is Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “To all those who oppose this legislation, I ask you: How could anyone vote against free and fair elections, a cornerstone of our Constitution?”
