In 2016 we witnessed an all-out assault on our democracy by way of election meddling at an unprecedented scale from Russia. We are still reeling from the damage done in 2016 and understanding the scale of the Russian attack.

Urge your members of Congress to pass the bipartisan Secure Elections Act now!
