Take Action

In a surprise move, the House leadership has scheduled a vote this Wednesday, June 22, on legislation to abolish the Election Assistance Commission, HR 672. With many continuing threats to the right to vote, now is not the time to terminate the only federal agency that devotes its full resources and attention to improving our elections.

Tell your Representative to vote no on HR 672!

The League believes that elections are fundamental to a functioning democracy and that every effort should be made to elevate their administration to the highest importance. Congress should not turn its back on federal efforts to ensure election integrity, improve voter access to the polls, and improve election systems. The value of the EAC far outweighs its monetary costs; in fact, the costs of poorly run elections are intolerable. It is time for election administration to move into the 21st Century, not back toward the 19th.


1. Send your Representative a message now! Tell him or her to vote against HR 672. Say that Congress should not turn its back on federal efforts to ensure election integrity, improve voter access to the polls, and improve election systems.    

2. Send this alert to other concerned citizens -- your grassroots network, your friends and coworkers -- encourage them to contact their Representative.
