The EAC – Needed Now More Than Ever!
Trump and the GOP are implementing voter suppression tactics at a federal level with a bill to eliminate the Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The EAC is an independent agency that was established in the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential election to ensure overall election integrity which we need now more than ever!
This agency helps state and local governments secure their electronic voting systems from cyberattacks, standardize and approve ballot language and design, and approve new voting machines and software. At a time of real concern over the hacking of our elections, we should be strengthening agencies like the EAC, not cutting them out. Don’t let House Republicans continue to push out anti-democratic and anti-oversight measures such as this, call them out now.

Hi my name is __________and I’m with the group Two Hours a Week. I’m calling to ask that Representative_________ publicly oppose and vote against HR 634, the Election Assistance Termination Act.
The bill is a clear attempt at voter suppression and comes at a time when we need the EAC the most. The presidential election in our country was dangerously compromised and getting rid of the EAc now will undermine the future integrity of our election process, and our democracy as a whole.
If Calling Rep. Harper, just use the 2nd paragraph.
