Since launching our "Request by Voters" campaign three days ago, we have already received affirmations of support from more than 1,000 individual and group signers.

In the past two days alone the following election integrity organizations have signed on to our proposal to transform the Holt Bill into meaningful legislation to restore democratic elections in our nation. Voters all around the nation are responding to our proposal because they recognize, as did some of the most experienced and intelligent election officials in the nation, that it is practical, realistic, and can work.

They also understand that our proposal is based on the two critical and simple foundational principles of democratic elections: open government and citizen oversight.

The executive summary and the full text of the letter are linked at the top of the website, along with an "About" link at the bottom
for those who may have questions about the entity that has drawn up this proposal.
