ABSTRACT

Voting Rights and Election Administration in the United States of America   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Executive Summary: "At the outset of the 116th Congress, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Committee on House Administration Chairperson Zoe Lofgren reconstituted the Committee on House Administration's Subcommittee on Elections, which House Republicans eliminated six years earlier. [...]The Subcommittee planned to take Congress to the American people, engage with voters, stakeholders, officials and election administrators, and collect testimony and evidence on the state of voting rights and election administration to ensure every eligible American has equal and fair access to the ballot and the confidence their ballot is counted as cast. The Subcommittee reviewed the landscape of voting in America post-'Shelby County' to determine whether Americans can freely cast their ballot. The Subcommittee examined arbitrary barriers that have been erected to impede access and block ballots from being counted. The wide-ranging and voluminous testimony received by the Subcommittee form the basis of this report. [...] The federal government has a responsibility to protect the right to vote of every eligible American. Congress must take full stock of the evidence before it, acknowledge widespread voter fraud does not exist, recognize the barriers preventing our constituents from voting, and act to remove them. This report details the Subcommittee's findings to enable Congress to move forward in ensuring the unimpeded right to vote for all Americans. The right to vote is at the core of what it means to participate in our democracy, and it must be protected."
