About the Event
We are going to call and write to our elected officials, draft letters to the editor, and take action to educate the public about the critical matter of election security.
The evidence is clear: In 2016, Russia targeted voting systems in all 50 states and used social media to spread disinformation and disunity among the electorate. Vulnerabilities in our systems are continually being revealed.
In response, 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. In 2018, 14 states used voting equipment that had no way of verifying vote counts in the event of a cyberattack.
Mueller's report and recent testimony implored lawmakers to focus on election security, but finger wagging and hand-wringing will not prevent another attack on our democracy. What we need is common sense legislation that gives states the resources they need to secure our votes.
Voting is the heart of democracy, and we must protect our votes.
