Restore the Faith in Our Democracy

Never again should millions of Americans be left to question the legitimacy of an election. 

Never again should the political class abdicate its responsibility to investigate and hold hearings when millions of Americans expressed doubts about the process and results of an election. The very people Americans rely on to tell the truth let them down by not seeking the truth.

In some states, voter ID is required, while in others it is not. In some states, ballots are automatically mailed, others not. In some states, ballot harvesting is permitted, others not. In some states, drop boxes are common, in others scarce. In some states, an excuse is needed to vote absentee, in others none. In some states, ballots are counted if received within two weeks after an election, but in others, they are tossed out if not received by election day.

We are equal in the words of the constitution and we are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law. This past election proved we are not. Not when there are different standards about who gets to vote, how they can vote, when they are allowed to vote, and who supervises the count when votes are tabulated in the dark of night.

If we do not reform our election laws, we will ensure a repeat of the 2020 election. Election integrity is essential to a free country and to the peaceful transition of power. We must ensure our systems are fair in order to secure voters’ faith in this vital pillar of democracy.
