    Justice Department vows to enforce federal election laws, prosecute election crimes – By Natalia Mittelstadt (Just the News) / Jan 10, 2024

    The DOJ will enforce the civil and criminal provisions of election laws and investigate foreign interference in elections.

    The Department of Justice will focus on enforcing federal election laws and prosecuting election crimes, with the 2024 presidential election just months away.

    On Tuesday, the DOJ announced that it will “ensure that all qualified voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots and have their votes counted free of discrimination, intimidation, or criminal activity in the election process, and to ensure that our elections are secure and free from foreign malign influence and interference.”

    The DOJ mentioned enforcing “the civil provisions” of multiple federal election laws, highlighting the expansive voting rights portions, such as provisional ballots and registering to vote at states’ Department of Motor Vehicles.

    The department also noted that it would enforce “the federal criminal laws that prohibit various forms of election crimes, such as destruction of ballots, vote-buying, multiple voting, submission of fraudulent ballots or registrations, alteration of votes, and malfeasance by postal or election officials and employees.”
