Secure Our Vote Day-of-Action Press Conference: Chicago!
Start: Tuesday, September 17, 2019•12:00 PM
Mitch McConnell is blocking essential funding for Election Security that states and localities desperately need to secure our vote from hacks. But due to popular outcry, we have a chance to win $600+ million to secure our elections by the Congressional funding deadline at the end of September.
The House has already passed a $600 million bill, now it’s time for Mitch McConnell and those GOP Senators backing his treachery to get out of the way so states and localities can secure the vote.
Please join us for a nationwide day of action to demand that the Senate allocates funding to secure out elections and protect our democracy.
