We already have laws to ensure that people have the right to vote, voter barriers “are not going to happen”

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said laws and regulations were already in place to ensure people “have the right to vote. We have.” And even if people “behave as if we want to prevent people from voting. That’s not going to happen.”

Manchin was asked, “There are a lot of people out there who say you do that so they will not be able to vote in the next election?”

Manchin replied: “The law is there. The rules are there. And basically the government. The government will stand behind them and make sure they have the right to vote. We have that. The things they are talking about now are in court. Marc Elias has an awful lot in court.The courts have cracked down, just like in Ohio, they cracked down on the gerrymandering.Things are happening, okay.We are behaving as if we want to prevent people from voting.It is not going to happen. ”
