Stop Foreign Interference in Our Elections
Our democracy was attacked in 2016. Russia did far more than hack campaign emails. It targeted state and local election infrastructure across our nation, sent phishing emails to over 100 election officials and vendors, and exposed 126 million Americans to Russia-backed ads on Facebook to sow discord in the presidential election.
Now, intelligence officials warn that 2016 may have just been the beginning. There is reason to believe that Russia and other hostile governments are already trying to interfere in our 2020 elections.
The situation is critical.
Every state is facing urgent election security issues. We’ve spoken with officials across the country who want to make important improvements, but lack the funds to do so.
Without immediate federal funding, at least 16 million Americans could be voting on paperless machines. That means no paper ballot backups that can be audited to confirm electronic tallies.
Sign our petition today to send a message to Congress. Americans deserve safe and secure elections — but time is running out. With the 2020 presidential election on the horizon, Congress must act now to pass adequate election security funding before it’s too late.
