Fighting Back: “Democrats are taking decisive action to secure our federal elections from outside interference.”

 
 

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) discussing the SAFE Act, a bill to protect our elections.

(In this week’s address, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren highlights House Democrats’ passage of the Securing America’s Federal Elections (SAFE) Act to address the urgent need to strengthen election security and prevent foreign interference in the 2020 election.)

House Democrats’ first act in the Majority was to advance H.R. 1, the For The People Act, which would help secure our elections.

Now, House Democrats are building on that progress with the Securing America’s Federal Elections, or, the SAFE Act, which takes decisive action to secure our federal elections from outside interference and brings our security into the 21st Century.

The SAFE Act makes meaningful investments to upgrade the security of voting systems across the country by replacing outdated, vulnerable voting machines; requiring paper ballot voting systems; enacting strong cybersecurity requirements for election technology vendors and voting systems; and more.

The SAFE Act represents an urgent, critical step to securing our election infrastructure and protecting the integrity of the ballot and our democracy.
