About the Election Transparency Initiative

Why Election Transparency?

Conservatives must engage in the battle for election transparency and security or our ability to elect principled lawmakers and pass laws upholding our values will be greatly diminished, if not extinguished. The Elections Transparency Initiative is quickly mobilizing in coordination with our coalition partners to defeat the efforts of radical Washington Democrats to override state election laws through H.R. 1 and H.R. 4, while simultaneously working at the state level to achieve meaningful reforms.

Americans have the right to be confident that it is easy to vote and hard to cheat in our elections, but H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 would spell disaster for our Democracy and generations of diluted and disenfranchised American voters who may lack the trust and confidence that voting is even worth it anymore. The Senate must reject this harmful legislation and Democrats’ attempt to force a Washington takeover of our elections into law. The reality is that it would undermine the right for every citizens’ vote to be cast and counted fairly and legally.

What We Do

  1. Work to defeat H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 legislation designed by extremists to override state elections laws, allow fraud to be committed on a massive scale, and disenfranchise the millions of American voters who may have little confidence their voice and vote is heard fairly and equally.
  2. Protect minority filibuster rights in the Senate from being abolished so H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 and other harmful, unpopular elements of the radical Democrat agenda can be forced into law by changing the Senate’s rules.
  3. Help enact laws promoting transparent, secure, and accountable elections in up to ten states where trust in our democratic system of elections has eroded.
