Election Integrity

Today a slate of election integrity bills will be heard in the Senate Committee on State Affairs. Chief among them is SB 7, by Sen. Hughes and co-authored by 12 Republican Senators. This bill is strong on dealing with mail-in balloting, protects poll watchers, and ends drive-through voting. Among its weaknesses: leaving the Secretary of State (SOS) with the ability to set election standards and waive law. Additionally, they have not restrained computer use in our elections. TEF believes your vote is most secure if it is counted by hand with many safeguards.
