The Justice Department (DOJ) has refused to release its mandated strategic plan about ways to champion voter registration and participation, according to the Foundation for Government Accountability.
President Joe Biden’s March 2021 Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting required every federal agency head to submit a plan within 200 days outlining methods the agency could use to promote voter registration and participation. A Federal District Court decided earlier in summer 2022 that the DOJ must release documents on this matter to the FGA by Sept. 8, but the department withheld the plan, citing executive privilege, and revealed heavily redacted versions of other documents, the FGA revealed.
FGA President and CEO Tarren Bragdon said Americans “deserve to know if the Biden Administration’s unprecedented action is fair and non-partisan.” He argued the DOJ must reveal the documents to ensure fair elections.
“Why are they ignoring public record requests for strategic plans on federal voter registration efforts?” Bragdon asked. “Why are they treating these documents like they are classified information dealing with nuclear weapons? Midterms are approaching, and the DOJ’s failure to disclose information raises troubling issues.”
Biden signed the executive order while Republican legislators in Georgia and other states championed election reform measures that CNN deemed “voter suppression legislation.” The order was “limited in scope,” according to USA Today.
The DOJ did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
