Tell Congress: Don't let Mitch McConnell block election security reform

If we don’t act now, Russia or other foreign actors could launch another dangerous, far-reaching attack on our elections in 2020. Members of Congress can’t delay -- they must pass sensible security measures to protect our elections from foreign tampering.

Signed,

How this will help

"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 warned Congress and the American people -- but will we heed his warning? If we don't IMMEDIATELY improve our election security measures, we can expect another foreign attack on the 2020 elections. 

But leaders in Washington, D.C. haven't done nearly enough to protect our election systems from foreign interference. In fact, just after Mueller's testimony, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked two commonsense election security bills from being voted on. 

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. 

The American voters should decide who wins our elections -- no one else. And we already know the strong, simple solutions that work -- like paper ballots and post-election audits. 

Congress' inaction is an open invitation for anyone who seeks to interfere with our elections. It's time for bold action -- add your name to tell our representatives: secure our elections, before it's too late.
