Musk Criticizes Democrats for Voting Against Election Integrity Bill


Elon Musk sharply criticized Democratic lawmakers for voting against the Republican-led American Confidence in Elections (ACE) Act, a bill designed to overhaul the country's election system and bolster election integrity. Musk's comments were made on social media, where he labeled Democrats as "traitors" for their opposition to the bill, which he claims is essential for securing the electoral process.

The ACE Act, championed by House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-Wis.), is considered one of the most stringent election integrity measures in recent history. The bill proposes several significant changes, including requiring voter ID for both in-person and mail-in voting, banning same-day voter registration, and mandating annual maintenance of voter lists. It also seeks to prohibit ballot harvesting and restricts the use of drop boxes, aiming to eliminate potential fraud and increase voter confidence​.

Republicans argue that these measures are necessary to restore trust in the electoral process, which has been a contentious issue since the 2020 presidential election. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) supported the bill, stating that it addresses widespread concerns about election integrity and aims to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat​.

Democrats, however, have criticized the ACE Act, arguing that it would disproportionately disenfranchise voters of color and other marginalized groups. They view the bill as a partisan effort to suppress voter turnout and maintain Republican power.

During the legislative process, Democrats proposed numerous amendments to the bill, all of which were rejected by the Republican majority. One of the amendments that failed aimed to acknowledge President Joe Biden as the rightful winner of the 2020 election, a point of contention since many Republicans have continued to question the legitimacy of the election results​.

The ACE Act has sparked significant debate and opposition. Critics argue that the bill's provisions could lead to voter suppression, particularly among minority communities.

They also point out that measures like strict voter ID requirements and restrictions on mail-in voting could make it more difficult for eligible voters to participate in elections​.

Despite the heated debate, the bill is unlikely to pass in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Nevertheless, its introduction and the subsequent backlash highlight the ongoing partisan divide over election integrity and voting rights in the United States. As both parties prepare for the upcoming elections, the battle over how to secure the electoral process continues to be a focal point of political discourse​​.


  1. So it’s up too the Republican’s to make sure they take total control of both houses, at the next elections, this is the only way they can get this through both houses, the Democrats will never vote for this as they know it will stop them doing what they did in 2020, it’s like asking Turkey’s to vote for Christmas, it never going to happen, the fact they are trying to make amendments, to get everyone to agree, that they didn’t cheat to get Biden elected in 2020. If this doesn’t prove that is actually what they did, nothing will!!!!!

  2. Biden admitted on hot mic that he cheated to get elected and that he would do it again . Enough said Democrats want it to be easy to cheat. That is not how our election is supposed to be conducted. Voter ID , in person and a paper ballot is the only way it needs to be done. No computers that can be fixed to switch the votes. Paper ballots are the only way to go .
