AFPI Issues Scorecards That Grade Each State’s Voter Protection Measures in Advance of the 2024 Election
The America First Policy Institute established its Center for Election Integrity (CEI) in 2021 with the goal of making it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.
Reaching this goal will help boost American confidence in elections and ensure the sacred right to vote is protected. In two years since its inception, CEI has made incredible progress towards protecting every legal vote and every legal voter, and has laid the groundwork for future advancements. CEI has also worked with all the relevant stakeholders to educate the U.S. Congress, state legislatures, secretaries of state, attorneys general, governors, local grassroots organizations, and everyday Americans about the policies that are proven to result in a safer, more secure, and accurate election system.
In celebration of its two-year anniversary and in advance of the 2024 election, CEI is releasing a brand-new tool: AN UPDATED, ONLINE, INTERACTIVE MAP WITH STATE-SPECIFIC SCORECARDS.
This new tool is meant to provide relevant stakeholders with an informative snapshot on how a particular state measures with other states on key election integrity policies.
Since 2021, CEI has:
- Created model policy that was signed into law, passed through the legislature, or introduced in 21 states (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Texas, Oklahoma, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Michigan, Arizona, North Dakota, North Carolina, and Montana).
- Conducted more than 350 radio and TV appearances, garnered more than 200,000 impressions on social media, placed 15 op-eds, and published countless official statements on election integrity issues whenever and wherever they have occurred.
- Developed relationships with governors, lieutenant governors, secretaries of state, legislators, and other relevant stakeholders to educate them on the importance of successful election integrity policies.
- Produced 23 policy products, including research papers, issue briefs, and fact sheets.
- Educated policymakers and the public on the dangers of partisan entities seeking to unduly and unlawfully influence elections. These entities include the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and the United States Alliance for Elections Excellence.
- Exposed problems with policies that attempted to federalize elections through published expert insight and Congressional testimony from Chair Ken Blackwell.
The battle for transparent elections in which one person casts one vote that is counted only one time continues. CEI will keep fighting to advance election integrity policies that help make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.
