Action Alert – Election Integrity Bill Hearing Monday

This Monday @ 9 AM, SB 9 by Senator Hughes will be heard. This bill makes several crucial changes to the law to secure our elections and we need your help to get it passed. A few of the changes the bill makes are listed below:

  • Requiring a paper back up for all ballots cast, and providing assistance to countries to retrofit their current machines if needed
  • A pilot program for robust Risk Limiting Audits, the gold standard for quickly double checking election night returns.
  • Allows law enforcement to conduct operations and investigations during elections
  • Provides avenue for redress and civil penalties for election fraud that can be enforced by a candidate who has been harmed by the fraud.
  • Requires an automatic recount if/when the total number of votes cast in a precinct exceeds the number of registered voters in that precinct.
