Protecting American Democracy

The ability to elect our leaders is one of the greatest rights and privileges of being an American. But, that right is under attack, both foreign and domestic. We need to expand access to the ballot box by restoring the critical components of the Voting Rights Act that prevents voter suppression. I support: a non-partisan commission to draw electoral districts, the prevention of voter caging – as practiced in Alabama – and other reprehensible actions to purge voter rolls, restoration of voting rights, and campaign finance reform that requires transparent donor information for Super PACs and dark money.

We need election security for the 21st century. America’s intelligence agencies agree that our election systems have been breached by cyberattacks and remains vulnerable to future hacks. Every American should be able to confidently cast their ballot knowing all measures have been taken to sustain the integrity of their vote.
