Executive Director John Pudner featured in The Hill: “Any mail-in voting efforts must be fair to both sides”

April 30, 2020

“Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to support both greater ballot access and election integrity. Stopping voter fraud and making sure every qualified voter who wants to vote is able to vote is not an either-or proposal.” “The key to sending $1.6 billion to the states to enable them to administer elections should hinge on moving these issues from a hyper partisan fight to settling on a sound policy that allows for both easier mail-in voting and protecting the […]

One state could reshape campaign finance, ethics debate

June 10, 2019

September 6, 2017

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI 8th District) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA 17th District) are clear about one thing: they don’t agree on much.
