RNC Pushes New Early Voting Program

After underwhelming midterm elections, the Republican National Committee announced a new program to take advantage of early voting tactics used successfully by Democrats.

In an overt case of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em,” the RNC’s program will encourage Republican voters to use “in-person early voting, absentee voting, and ballot harvesting where legal.”

The program is being called “Bank Your Vote” and is a direct result of party leaders pushing back against former President Donald Trump’s – and other candidates – resistance to early voting methods which Democrats used to their advantage.

“We’ve got to have a change of culture among Republican voters,” Representative Richard Hudson of North Carolina, chairman of the NRCC, said on Wednesday. “And it’s going to require us all on the same page.”

Even Trump is changing his tune. Last month, his campaign fundraised for a “ballot harvesting fund”.

Republicans have long been suspicious of third-party ballot collecting, where volunteers or contractors pick up and turn completed ballots into collection sites on behalf of voters.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel spoke positively of Trump’s messaging change.

“It’s simple math: You want to get as many votes in before Election Day,” she said. “But that certainly is a challenge if you have people in your ecosystem saying don’t vote early or don’t vote by mail. And those cross messages do have an impact. I don’t think you’re seeing that heading into 2024. I think you’re seeing all of us singing from the same song.”

“We have some voters that like to vote on Election Day, and we have to explain to them we can’t allow Democrats to get a head start,” McDaniel said. “We don’t want to wait till the fourth quarter to start scoring touchdowns when you have four quarters to put points on the board.”

More early voting would allow the RNC and candidates to allocate resources more effectively in the final weeks of campaigning. It would also protect voters against last minute illnesses or poor weather preventing them from getting to the polls.


  1. As long as there is some form of reliable Validation of Mail-In-Ballots, I’m all for it.
    I’m obviously a Senior but I still have to show an ID to buy Beer or Wine in my Supermarket.
    There is no excuse for not requiring Voter ID. The ONLY reason is to enable fraudulent Voting.

  2. I’m not understanding what difference it makes to vote earlier . I want to what ever it take to get that idiot out of the White House but l like to give my vote to a person than put it a box that may or my not get to the right person to be counted. Yours Truly Cleah Williams

  3. We are a sand lot pickup team up against the NFL. Until we master the art of storing preprinted ballots in boxes under the tables and feeding stacks of them through the counter several times, we will be operating at a handicap. They have been practicing for decades.

  4. BUT HERE IS THE PROBLEM!!! THEY CHEAT and we don’t….therefore it will not make a lick of sense to change this. Nothing can repair this cheating scheme except going back to paper ballots and one day voting, all must have voting ID, and I believe it is crucial for the military to be the overseers from start to finish, since we can no longer trust those who do the counting and reporting. We also need harsher laws for those who commit fraud in our elections. Afterall, we see the damage that “installed puppets” can do to a nation. Getting them in was the easy part….kicking them out for fraud is long, drawn out s show!! It didn’t take long to ruin the nation. This is important to do!!

  5. Fully agree with the comments concerning Republicans playing by the rules. The Dems are an end justifies the means as long as we remain in power. How does Ronna M. and her candidate eliminate opposition cheating?
