Securing our Elections

Photo Identification. It’s required for boarding a plane, cashing a check, renting a car, getting a fishing license, picking up a prescription, entering an office building, and serving on a jury.

A photo ID is required for virtually everything we do. But there’s one thing a photo ID is not required for: voting in our elections. I believe this is unacceptable. What must we do? Require a photo ID in order to vote, require signature matching for absentee ballots, and ensure that only U.S. citizens are voting.

That’s why I authored and introduced H.R. 102, The Restoring Faith in Our Elections Act. It does just that. It would require a photo ID in order to vote, require signature matching for absentee ballots, and ensure that only U.S. citizens are voting. The extremists in Congress are blocking my bill because they want our elections to be the Wild West rather than fair and secure.

I also fought and voted against President Biden and Nancy Pelosi’s extreme bill “H.R. 1,” which would lead to a federal takeover of our elections and make our elections even less secure.

The integrity of our vote is the most sacred thing we must secure for our democracy.
