Former President Donald Trump, the prominent GOP candidate in the 2024 elections, is formally endorsing the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) “Bank Your Vote” initiative. The aim is to encourage Republicans nationwide to vote early in 2024, as Trump believes that radical Democrats have taken advantage of early voting laws to gain an unfair advantage before election day. In an exclusive video provided to Breitbart News, Trump emphasizes the need for Republicans to embrace early voting and absentee options to counter Democratic tactics that focus on collecting ballots without sharing conservative values.
Trump praises the RNC’s program, which encourages early voting in-person, absentee voting, mail voting, and ballot harvesting where legal. This backing from Trump is a significant development for the party, considering his history of scrutinizing election issues. He calls on Republicans to get tougher and fight harder to cast their votes and get their ballots turned in earlier to prevent Democrats from rigging the polls against them on election day. Trump believes that such rigging occurred in the 2020 election and must not be allowed to happen again in 2024.
Trump’s push for Republicans to work within the current election rules while advocating for changes in the future echoes his earlier statements. Although he believes in implementing same-day voting, paper ballots, and voter ID, he recognizes that until Republicans regain power to change voting laws, they must play the game like Democrats under the current system.
The “Bank Your Vote” initiative, introduced by the RNC in June, has the support of chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other top party leaders. It encourages Republicans to maximize early voting efforts to beat Joe Biden and the Democrats in 2024. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have also joined the initiative, appointing Trump backers to lead the effort.
The comprehensive vote-banking effort supported by Trump involves multiple fronts, including digital and data strategies, ground game efforts, and strategic messaging. The RNC’s data team will work with its digital team to identify potential early voters and communicate with them digitally. The party’s field operations, along with nationwide volunteers and staff, will make direct contacts to ensure as many votes as possible are banked early. The initiative aims to safeguard the vote and secure victories for Republicans nationwide in the upcoming elections.
