Issue 6: Election Integrity
It is our government’s responsibility to ensure that our elections maintain their integrity, meaning that the vote cast is the vote counted, that every American eligible to vote is able to vote, and that voter power is not diminished via gerrymandering. Investments in election security must address the changing nature of technology, as well as the technological capabilities of global “bad actors” looking to exploit the democratic process.
At the same time, barriers designed to make it more difficult for eligible individuals to vote, such as voter ID laws, must be removed. Finally, districts designed to give unfair advantage of one party over another must be reviewed and redrawn to ensure equitable representation. Our democracy only works if the government elected truly represents the will of the people.
