The entire national security community agrees that election interference in 2016 was only a preview of what’s to come unless Congress acts. Yet the Senate has failed to move forward with critical election security funding for states.
Mitch McConnell is trying to prevent our nation from taking action on Election Security, but due to popular outcry we have a chance to win $600 million to secure our elections by replacing election machines with paper ballots in the next Congressional appropriations whose deadline is October 1.
The House recently passed HR 3351, which would allocate $600 million to states so that they can update electronic voting equipment with systems that use verifiable paper ballots. Paper ballots are the best protection against cyberattacks attempting to change the outcome of our elections.
On Tuesday, September 17th, activists are taking part in a nationwide day of action. People across the country are gathering outside their local Senate office to demand the Senate passes allocates funding to secure out elections. Sign up now to attend an event in Chicago!
