NEDC IN THE NEWS:
NEDC & Conservatives Push Senate & Senator McConnell to fund Election security
Senate appropriators allocated $0 for election security at the Sept 17th FSGG Appropriations Committee hearing.
However, immediately following a press conference by NEDC and conservative advocates on September 18th (including Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks), Senator McConnell co-sponsored an amendment allocating $250 million for elections.
BREAKING AP Exclusive: New election systems use vulnerable software
This toolkit, created jointly by the Brennan Center for Justice, Common Cause, the National Election Defense Coalition, and Verified Voting, is meant as a roadmap for advocates and election officials nationwide as local jurisdictions consider purchasing new voting machines. It also suggests best practices for conducting post-election audits.
NEDC SUPPORT FOR BIPARTISAN Legislation
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).
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.
