This is the October 15, 2019 Field Hearing "Preparing for 2020: How Illinois is Securing Elections" held before the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Bennie G. Thompson: "Election security requires a whole-of-government approach--Federal, State, and local--effort to protect America's elections. It is a National security issue that transcends party politics and reaches into the heart of our democracy. As we approach the 2020 elections it is critical that we work together to protect democracy's most sacred tradition: Free and fair elections. [...] The Federal Government, especially Congress, must understand the resource constraints of local election officials and partner with them to address vulnerabilities to election infrastructure through grants and services. Local election officials are on the front line of securing our elections and your success depends on the resources and support you receive from Federal and State government." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Matt Masterson, Steven S. Sandvoss, Robin M. O'Connor, and Elizabeth L. Howard.
