A US Senate bill to stop foreign election interference?

Vox.

A Republican-led, Democrat-supported bill to safeguard US elections from foreign interference is stuck in the bowels of Congress. Here’s a possible explanation: The White House doesn’t want it to pass.
The Secure Elections Act, which Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) introduced, would have made significant changes to the way states protect their voting systems in three significant ways.

No doubt US lawmakers will also draw up a bill to stop the US from meddling in foreign countries' elections?*

*Naahh, just kidding: that won't happen!

  1. The States control the voting systems, not the federal government. This would violate the 9th & 10th Amendments.

    1. Aren't they referring to Federal elections?

    2. There are no "federal" polling places. The parties and States develop the ballots and primary schedules. The Counties select the voting equipment and man the polls. The feds pick a few dates and offices to be filled... and that's it.
