Recent revelations from Vice President Kamala Harris indicate that the Biden administration has initiated a potentially controversial program to pay college students for registering new voters and serving as non-partisan poll workers. Critics argue that this initiative is a thinly veiled attempt to turn out more voters for the Democratic party, raising concerns about the legality of such actions.

Vice President Harris disclosed the government’s plan during a meeting with voting rights groups, revealing that the Federal Work-Study program would be utilized to compensate students for their involvement in voter registration and poll working activities. The key point of contention is whether this initiative crosses legal boundaries by using taxpayer funds for what some view as partisan objectives.

While Harris emphasizes the non-partisan nature of the program, skeptics point out that a significant majority of college students lean towards the Democratic party. In the 2020 election, 65% of young voters aged 18-24 cast their ballots for President Joe Biden. This demographic alignment raises questions about the true non-partisan nature of the initiative.

Hans A. von Spakovsky from the Heritage Foundation has labeled the program as an “unauthorized use of taxpayer funds” and alleges that it violates both the Hatch Act and the Anti-Deficiency Act. The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from engaging in political activities, while the Anti-Deficiency Act restricts the spending of federal funds outside of Congress-approved allocations.

The actions in question are said to fall under the umbrella of Executive Order 14019, signed by President Biden shortly after taking office. This order mandates federal agencies to explore ways to encourage voter turnout, leading to accusations that the administration is overstepping its bounds and using executive power to influence the electoral process.

Critics point to another example of potential abuse, where the Department of Health and Human Services plans to send voter registration letters to all Americans using Obamacare. This move is viewed as disproportionately favoring Democratic voters, as Obamacare is reportedly 12% less likely to be utilized by Republicans.

Some argue that these initiatives, combined with the recent forgiveness of $132 billion in student loans, paint a picture of the Biden administration resorting to desperate measures to secure the support of young voters. The allegations of voter bribery through executive actions raise concerns about the ethical and legal boundaries of using federal programs to influence political outcomes.

The controversy surrounding the Biden administration’s voter registration and poll worker compensation program highlights the fine line between encouraging civic engagement and potential voter bribery.
