Subject: We must pass SB1557
As a member of a large activist community, I'm writing to let you know that we consider SB1557 on Election Reform to be one of the most critical bills you'll be asked to pass this year. It should pass out of the Rules Committee today and show up on the floor of the Senate for a vote soon. When it does, please be sure to pass it. Several of you are co-sponsors of this bill; I thank you heartily for your support. I know there is still work to be done, but it can and will be done after this bill is passed in the Senate. I'm sure no one would vote against fair elections so thank you in advance.
Without election reform, our democratic process will become a joke. Besides, it's the law. Unverifiable votes in the United States is totally unacceptable. Our right to have our vote counted is paramount so please pass SB1557 so we can be confident in the next election that our vote didn't simply disappear into the electronic atmosphere. Legitimate verifiable elections have been described as the bright line between legitimate nations and rogue states. Please uphold our constitutional rights.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
