President Joe Biden chose former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice on Tuesday to oversee hundreds of federal departments in a push to expand mail-in voting across the country.
Biden signed an executive order earlier this month that put Susan Rice in charge of developing ways to expand voting registration procedures, demanding federal agencies to inform Rice of strategic plans aimed at promoting voter registration and participation in the first 200 days.
"Agencies shall consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process," the order states, according to the Washington Free Beacon. "The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation."
The order demands that federal agencies must distribute applications for voter registration and vote-by-mail ballots, as well as helping individuals fill out the forms.
Further, the mandate urges agencies to allow "approved, nonpartisan third-party organizations and State officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises."
Susan Rice, who now serves as assistant to the president for domestic policy, was the US ambassador to the United Nations during the Benghazi terrorist attack on the US embassy and consulate in Libya, which left four Americans dead on Sept. 11, 2012 in a blatant act of negligence by the Obama administration.
