Ramaswamy Shared Past Support for Mandatory Voting, Casting Ballots from Home

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy once voiced support for mandatory voting and online ballots.

The report from 2020 came one day after the last presidential election said in a past post on X, former Twitter.

"Electronic at-home voting. Make it universal; submit a blank ballot if you want," he posted on X.

"One per SSN for every adult citizen. No ballot fraud. No voter suppression. No wasted money on ‘get-out-the-vote.’ Most importantly: greater civic engagement. Thoughts?"

"Ramaswamy has previously voiced support for a constitutional amendment raising the voting age from 18 to 25, unless a person serves in the military or as a first responder or can pass the civics test immigrants take when becoming U.S. citizens," Fox News reported.

"Ramaswamy made his comments Sunday while criticizing former Vice President Mike Pence for missing 'a historic opportunity' to unite the country on Jan. 6, 2021," it added.

The GOP candidate has become the breakout star of the early primary battles, in some polls passing Gov. Ron DeSantis for second place behind former President Donald Trump.

The young business leader has also received praise from Trump, with Ramaswamy supporting the former president on most issues.

The contender has held no previous political positions, however, putting him in a place of inexperience compared with other candidates, such as Pence and other candidates.

The latest report shows that many of his views have been developed just in time for the campaign and that his experience level as a conservative may not be ready for the White House.
