Bill Passes the Senate
That was pretty close again!
The cloture motion has received 61 votes reaching 60 votes required for cloture. The bill shall be voted upon now
There is a vote to now close the debate and vote on bill.
The bill has gotten 80 yays and 20 nays. The bill passes the Senate. Since there is no change from House version, the bill doesn't need a conference committee and will now go to the president.
We may as well just vote if it is going to pass anyway.
President Signs or Veto the Bill
President has signed the bill. It will go into effect this election.
Don't think President will veto this bill.
The Bill Goes into Effect
It is nice that they passed the early voting bill. Now I can vote early and the process just became a lot better and easier.
