MoveOn Petition to Move Election Protection Bills Forward In The Senate
Sign the MoveOn petition re: GOP blocking election protection bills in the Senate
Dear MoveOn member,
Robert Mueller made it entirely clear to our members of Congress and the American people: Russia’s attack on our elections was drastic—and they are already at it again. “They’re doing it as we sit here,” Mueller warned everyone. If we don’t immediately improve our election security measures, we can expect it to happen again in 2020.1
Robert Mueller made it clear in his testimony that Russia attacked us in 2016 and is still working on another dangerous, far-reaching attack on our elections in 2020. Our members of Congress can’t delay. They must pass sensible security measures to protect our elections from foreign tampering.
“Over the course of my career, I’ve seen a number of challenges to our democracy. The Russian government’s effort to interfere in our election is among the most serious.” –Former special counsel Robert Mueller, during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee2
But the fact of the matter is that despite multiple warning signs, leaders in Washington, D.C., haven’t done NEARLY enough to protect our election systems from foreign interference. In fact, just after Mueller’s compelling testimony, one GOP senator blocked a series of commonsense, bipartisan election security bills—and Senator Mitch McConnell personally blocked two more election security bills from being voted on.3
Tell Republicans in Congress—and especially Mitch McConnell—to stop blocking important election security bills.
We can’t afford to put off fortifying our electoral process any longer. 2020 is fast approaching—and if we don’t act now to stop foreign entities from spreading misinformation, hacking voting machines, and attempting to collaborate with campaigns, the very foundation of our democracy could be at risk.
We deserve the utmost confidence that the American people decide who wins our elections, not Russian operatives. And we already know the strong, simple solutions that work—like paper ballots and post-election audits.
But now, it’s up to Congress to act. Add your name to tell your representatives: Secure our elections, before it’s too late.
Add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.
