👍🏻👍🏻S. 2593— the Secure Elections Act👍🏻👍🏻
By all means YES I’d SAY YES to the immediate passage of this commonsense, bipartisan Senatebill S. 3593 - the Secure Elections Act which would provide needed funding for states to secure their election systems while ensuring that their security is continuously monitored and updated.
This Senate bill S. 2593— the Secure Elections Act — would give the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) the primary responsibility within the federal government for sharing information about election cybersecurity incidents, threats, and vulnerabilities with federal entities and election agencies.
The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) would award $386 million in election system cybersecurity and modernization grants to states and election agencies to implement the panel’s guidelines. Grants would be awarded to: 1) remediate vulnerabilities identified by a cybersecurity evaluation; 2) replace electronic voting systems that aren’t optical scanners that read paper ballots; and 3) reimburse states for statistical audits of ballots in close federal elections.
This commonsense, bipartisan bill would provide needed funding for states to secure their election systems while ensuring that their security is continuously monitored and updated.
