First look: Trump alumni plan voting group
August 18, 2021
The America First Policy Institute, led by Trump administration alumni, on Thursday will announce a Center for Election Integrity, a nonprofit group it says will push policies in state legislatures to “help make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.”
Driving the news: CEI will hold a morning announcement event at Atlanta Metropolitan Cathedral, a nod to Georgia’s swing-state status as a hotbed of election controversy.
- The group posted an introductory video.
What they’re saying: Hogan Gidley, a former White House spokesman and the center’s director, said CEI “will work tirelessly to protect the voters and safeguard the integrity of future elections because one illegal vote is one too many.”
- The group aims to support voter ID requirements and to “require ballots to be returned by election day…ensure voter rolls are consistently cleaned and kept up to date…and litigate cases of voter fraud.”
- CEI chairman Ken Blackwell, a former Ohio secretary of state, said in a statement: “We must help make sure that people have confidence in our system and that we give citizens a fair vote count.”
