The EAC is necessary to improve election administration on a Bi-partisan basis. The invaluable work of the EAC ensures that our nation's election systems remain reliable and trustworthy. Vote NO on HR 634.
How convenient to reduce election oversite immediately after an election where there were charge of impropriety. If a group was serious about protecting integrity they would increase or expand oversite, but if a group had something to hide and was worried about being caught, they would probably support something like this.
Elimination of this function will provide no means to double check an election result. Funny the GOP brought this up now just as Donald Trump has claimed issues with massive voter fraud! How can we prove or disprove it if we eliminate this body?? Vote NAY on HR634.
This post hasn't been updated yet but I just read that this bill passed. I was against this and wanted to voice why. In 2014 the Obama Administration gave the EAC the task of modernizing outdated voting machines with more efficient models that used more secure technology. I can not believe we have terminated this program Terminating the EAC abruptly ends its important work, therefore putting our democratic process at a higher risk for voting irregularities, machine failures, and hacks. Considering Russia’s proven attempts to interfere with state voter registration databases via hacking with intent to destabilize our entire presidential election the dismantling of the EAC is especially horrific.
REALLY?! As Trump insists on investigating voter fraud that didn't happen, now they want to repeal a commission that ensures voting machines aren't hacked. Say it with me now: "voter suppression." VOTE NO.
Given the questions of voter suppression, Russian interference, and possible collusion between presidential campaigns and foreign governments; now is the time to sustain and increase election oversight. We need MORE systems in place to insure the integrity of our elections, not less.
