U.S. Congress

Robert Mueller made it clear in his testimony that Russia could launch another dangerous, far-reaching attack on our elections in 2020. Our members of Congress can’t delay -- they must pass sensible security measures to protect our elections from foreign tampering.

"Over the course of my career, I've seen a number of challenges to our democracy. The Russian government's effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious."- former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee

Robert Mueller made it entirely clear to our members of Congress and the American people: Russia's attack on our elections was drastic -- and if we don't immediately improve our election security measures, we can expect it to happen again in 2020. 

But the fact of the matter is -- despite multiple warning signs, leaders in Washington, D.C. haven't done NEARLY enough to protect our election systems from foreign interference. In fact, just after Mueller's rousing testimony, one GOP senator blocked a series of commonsense, bipartisan election security bills -- and a day later, Senator McConnell personally blocked two more election security bills from getting votes.

We can't afford to put off fortifying our electoral process any longer. 2020 is fast approaching -- and if we don't act now to stop foreign entities from spreading misinformation, hacking voting machines, and attempting to collaborate with campaigns, the very foundation of our democracy could be at risk. 

We deserve the utmost confidence that the American people decide who wins our elections, not Russian operatives. And we already know the strong, simple solutions that work -- like paper ballots and post-election audits. 

But now, it's up to Congress to act. Add your name to tell your representatives: secure our elections, before it's too late.
