Kamala Harris: Biden Admin Now Paying College Students To Register Voters, Work At Polls

 Vice President Kamala Harris sparked outrage this week when she revealed that the Biden administration will be paying college students to register people to vote and to work at polls.

“We have been doing work to promote voter participation for students,” Harris said. “For example, we have, under the Federal Work-Study program, now allow students to get paid through Federal Work-Study to register people and to be non-partisan poll workers.”

“As we know, this is important for a number of reasons,” she added. “One, to engage our young leaders in this process and activate them in terms of their ability to strengthen our communities.”


Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) responded to Harris’ remarks by posting on X: “Biden signed EO14019 ordering federal govt to use taxpayer $ to mobilize (his) voters. [Former Trump administration official Stephen Miller] has FOIAed details, and I’ve sought them in Congress, but Biden is hiding them. Sounds like the election-year plan is underway.”

Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI) called the Biden administration’s plan “unacceptable,” saying, “Democrats are now trying to use taxpayer dollars for their get-out-the-vote efforts.”

Former Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) posted on X: “Imagine if Republicans wanted to use taxpayer $$ to pay what they perceive (and know) as their more reliable constituencies to register voters.”


“This small help could create big outcomes in close precincts,” he continued. “‘Protect democracy’ they scream. Election rigging in plane sight.”
