Take Action Against Internet Voting Expansion
Internet voting carries significant risks to the integrity of our elections. Help us safeguard our democracy by opposing internet voting expansion in these states.
Reputable federal entities responsible for cybersecurity and elections, including the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, EAC, NIST, FBI, and DHS, have all asserted that internet voting cannot be conducted securely at this time. The risk of potential hacking, manipulation, and data breaches is a major concern.
Here are some of the states where internet voting bills are currently being proposed:
Issue: AB299 seeks to institute internet ballot return for military voters and requires identification of military voters for voting absentee, including some burdensome requirements on both clerks and military voters.
- Contact your state legislators and express your concerns about the potential implications of Assembly Bill 299 on internet voting expansion. Call 1-800-362-9472 and give your address to be connected to your state Assemblymember.
- Email your Chief Elections Official and urge them to oppose Assembly Bill 299, highlighting the potential risks of expanding Internet Voting.
Issue: House Bill 4210 seeks to expand electronic ballot return for military voters and their spouses, which could open the door to broader internet voting initiatives.
- URGENT: Call the Michigan State Legislator at (517) 373-0135 to look up your state legislator and let them know you oppose HB4210 – no internet ballot return in Michigan.
- Email your state senator and urge them to oppose HB 4210, highlighting the potential risks and vulnerabilities of internet voting.
Issue: House Bill 1475 seeks to increase access to returning ballots electronically, potentially laying the groundwork for expanded internet voting.
- Get in touch with your state legislators and express your opposition to HB1475, emphasizing the need for secure and accountable voting methods.
- Engage with local election integrity organizations and help them educate the public about the risks associated with internet voting in Washington.
Remember: Internet voting poses significant cybersecurity and transparency challenges that could jeopardize the accuracy and security of our elections. Your active involvement is crucial in safeguarding the integrity of our democratic process.
