In 2016, Russia interfered with our elections to help elect Donald Trump. According to multiple current and former officials, foreign powers are already attempting to meddle in the 2020 election as well. And our election systems across the country remain vulnerable.
Yet, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently blocked two bills meant to safeguard our elections from foreign interference — one would require paper ballots, the other would mandate that campaign staff, candidates, and their family members notify the FBI if they receive offers of foreign aid.
We can’t allow McConnell to continue to place our democracy at risk. We must take action to protect our elections from foreign interference and to ensure that all votes will be properly counted.
At Free Speech For People, the right to free and fair elections is one of our top priorities. We are currently combatting efforts to undermine our election systems ahead of the 2020 election.
