NEDC SUPPORT FOR BIPARTISAN Legislation

On August 22, 2018, Senator James Lankford delivered a speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate about his bipartisan Secure Elections Act.

SENATE BILL 2593 - The Secure Elections Act


NEDC Congressional education helped galvanize the Secure Elections Act (S.2593), introduced in December of 2017 by a bipartisan group of six Senators; James Lankford (R-OK), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Martin Heinrich (D-NM). 

FreedomWorks supports the Secure Elections Act.


HOUSE BILL 3751 - THE PAPER ACT


The PAPER Act (H.R. 3751) also has strong bipartisan support, including Grover Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform. The immediate aim of both bills is to secure federal support for states and counties to replace antiquated paperless voting machines before the 2018 and 2020 federal elections and to press for policy changes to ensure election administrators have the auditing tools and training to detect and thwart a cyber-attack.
