The 2016 presidential election made clear how vulnerable U.S. democracy is to foreign election interference.
The House of Representatives recently passed an appropriations bill that allocates $600 million for states to enhance election security to prevent cyber attacks and foreign interference. The Senate must now follow the House of Representatives’ lead. This funding would give states the necessary resources to ensure the integrity of future elections. Specifically, the money would help states replace vulnerable electronic voting machines with systems that use voter-verified paper ballots.
We must speak up before it’s too late. Call your senators now to tell them to join the House in allocating $600 million to election security.
