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 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.

ACRU’s Blackwell: Baseball strikes out on protecting American voters

ACRU's Ken Blackwell is a shareholder of the Cincinnati Reds, and has a wonderful family association with the history of black baseball.

Vote safety laws protect ALL voters of every race.

ACRU’s Ken Blackwell Discusses Risks of a “More Muscular” Central Government on CL Bryant Show

Listen as ACRU's Ken Blackwell fearlessly defends liberty and the "risk" people must be willing to take to stay free in his interview with Rev. CL. Bryant. Amb. Blackwell notes ACRU is "in the middle of the fight to save our Constitutional Republic" by educating people about the dangers of the For The People Act, which will move us toward oppressive one-party, centralize rule -- and away from freedom.
