McLEAN, VA. (AP) — The United States expects to face fast-moving threats to American elections this year as artificial intelligence and other technological advances have made interference and meddling easier than before, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Thursday.

By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

How Homeland Security Is Undermining Faith in U.S. Elections

Now that the party nominees for president have all but been decided, America’s entire election infrastructure is under assault, from foreign governments, hackers, and extremists. Or at least that’s the frenzied message being conveyed from on high these days. Russian warning lights are flashing. Think tanks are working overtime to grind out panicked reports about cybersecurity and disinformation. Fearmongering proliferates on both sides of the political aisle.

States rush to combat AI threat to elections

This year’s presidential election will be the first since generative AI — a form of artificial intelligence that can create new content, including images, audio, and video — became widely available. That’s raising fears that millions of voters could be deceived by a barrage of political deepfakes.

South Carolina to hold 2024 congressional elections with map previously ruled unconstitutional

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A federal court on Thursday ruled that this year’s congressional elections in South Carolina will be held under a map that it had already deemed unconstitutional and discriminatory against Black voters, with time running out ahead of voting deadlines and a lack of a decision on the case by the Supreme Court.

Dems dream of turning Florida

Democrats think they might have a chance to turn Florida back into a battleground state, following a seismic ruling on abortion yesterday from the state's highest court.

  • Florida's Supreme Court cleared the way for a near-total abortion ban to take effect next month, while also giving voters a chance to undo the restrictions in November.

💡 The big picture: Abortion rights have won every time they've appeared on the ballot since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Axios' Yacob Reyes writes.

  • Democrats hope Florida's ballot initiative will boost energy and turnout among liberal voters.
  • "There is a well-founded belief that a lot of money will come into the state now, and that's going to be good for the entire Democratic column," Democratic elections analyst Matt Isbell said.

🧐 Reality check: Republicans in Florida have a staggering lead in active voter registration and a robust political infrastructure. Gov. Ron DeSantis won re-election by nearly 20 points in 2022.

The Democratic campaign arm working to win control of statehouses has notched back-to-back months of record grassroots fundraising, helped by a first-of-its-kind donor program, Axios' Stef Kight has learned.

Why it matters: Changes to state voting laws, debates over school curriculum and the Supreme Court decision ending the right to abortion have juiced state-level Democratic election efforts.

  • The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee set a new all-time record in grassroots fundraising for a first quarter to start this year, DLCC staff told Axios.
  • The cash flow was helped by a new program launched at the start of the year called "Down Ballot Defenders," which has brought in a tranche of new, monthly donors to boost Democrats' state-level efforts.
  • DLCC hopes to leverage more consistent, monthly donations to strategize and plan ahead as it tries to flip legislative seats in key states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona.

By the numbers: DLCC brought in over $2.3 million through grassroots donors in the first quarter — a 45% jump over its last record quarter.

  • The new Down Ballot Defenders program is projected to raise more than 20% of the total grassroots fundraising for the cycle.

Republicans Hatched a Secret Assault on the Voting Rights Act in Washington State

Republican Paul Graves’ work was about to come undone. In the wee hours of Nov. 15, 2021, he and his fellow Republican on Washington state’s independent redistricting commission had finally prevailed on their Democratic counterparts to agree to the maps voters would use in the upcoming election.
