Blackwell: Supreme Court Turned the Tide in Election Integrity War

Election integrity recently won a pivotal battle against an attempt by Democrats to hijack the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) for partisan reasons. They failed when the Supreme Court in Brnovich v. DNC laid a foundation to restore Americans’ confidence in their elections so that everywhere in this nation it can be easy to vote, but hard to cheat.

ACRU Amicus Brief Supports Supreme Court Arizona Voting Integrity Policy Win

With the recent successful filibuster blocking Senate consideration of the so-called “For the People Act,” the Supreme Court’s decision in Brnovich takes on added importance. By reversing the Ninth Circuit’s decision, as The ACRU argued it should, Arizona’s race-neutral, generally applicable election rules limiting out-of-precinct voting and ballot harvesting will stand without any danger of preemption by federal statute.

Hans von Spakovsky: Merrick Garland’s misleading voting claims – what AG gets wrong about US elections | Fox News

Partisan, political, designed to inflame. That’s what Merrick Garland’s recent speech on voting rights was. It certainly was not objective, measured and deliberate – the kind of speech you expect from an attorney general. What’s worse, his central assertion – that state efforts to improve the integrity of the election process will make it "harder" for eligible citizens to vote – is demonstrably false.

Von Spakovsky: Another Bill to Give Partisan Bureaucrats Control Over State Election Laws

One of the false narratives constantly pushed by liberals is that the efforts of states to reform and fix vulnerabilities in their election systems are somehow examples of “voter suppression.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Making sure that every eligible citizen is able to vote and that their vote is not lost or stolen through fraud or errors is not voter suppression—it is good governance.

ACRU’s Blackwell: Democrats Pull Hat Trick With Dishonest Voting Rights Bill

Democrats are pushing another federal takeover of elections with the so-called John Lewis Voting Right Advancement Act. This one is a power grab forcing states to get permission from the Democrat-controlled federal government before implementing election integrity measures like voter ID and other constitutional safeguards.

ACRU President Lori Roman Testifies to Congress About Voting in America

We should all be able to agree it should be easy to vote and hard to cheat. The integrity of the ballot box is essential to the continued success of the United States constitutional system. Now is the time to protect the integrity of every individual's vote by ensuring their votes are not diluted by fraudulent votes. Voter rolls across the country are filled with names of individuals who have moved, died, or are ineligible to legally vote.

ACRU’s Blackwell: Radicals Push One Step Closer to Historic Power Grab with S. 1

Radicals are cramming a federal takeover of elections through a key vote on the 'Corrupt Politicians Act,' part of their plan with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to transform America into a permanent one-party socialist nation.

ACRU’s Blackwell: How low will Democrats go on pushing Jim Crow narrative?

Many on the left claim that voting integrity measures, such as voter ID, are throwbacks to the Jim Crow era. Since Jim Crow laws were enacted by Southern Democrats to force racial segregation and block economic and political power among Black Americans, Democrats should know their current claims are preposterous. As the old saying goes, “they have a lot of nerve.”

ACRU’s Blackwell: Goodbye, Election Day. Hello Corrupt Politicians Act

A notorious bill moving through Congress – H.R. 1 – contains a swarm of bad ideas. But little noticed is a provision that makes Election Day obsolete. We’ve lost so many unifying cultural events that bring Americans together, it is no surprise that H.R.1 not only would start the election weeks earlier, but also prolong the election well after Election Day.
