Voting brings us together as Americans—it is the one time we are all equal. But a new national task force, created to justify President Trump’s false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 elections, is laying the groundwork for dangerous voter suppression across the country.
Don’t let a few select politicians suppress the votes of millions of Americans. Sign our petition today!
The so-called ‘Election Integrity’ Commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, is seeking to find potential fraudulent registration on voter rolls across the country. They’ve requested personal, confidential information from all fifty states that threatens the privacy of Americans.
There is no justification for this giant fishing expedition. Stand with the League against these dangerous requests.
The request for voter records confirms fears of Kris Kobach continuing his tactics of voter suppression and the genesis of the Election ‘Integrity’ Commission in general. Mr. Kobach has been brought to court—and lost—several times for suppressing the constitutional rights of citizens to vote in his home state of Kansas.
This Commission is not interested in facts, but rather false accusations, in order to implement dangerous election policy. Its efforts to ‘investigate voter fraud’ threaten our most fundamental voting rights. The League will not let this Commission intimidate voters but we need your help. Tell the Commission you won’t let anything stop you from exercising your right to vote.
Yours in the fight,
