The Path Forward

Federal Election Legislation

All Americans who believe in the Constitution and representative government will need to join the fight to protect our elections and ensure that states, not the federal government, will set the manner in which elections are conducted.  See how your representatives vote on key election legislation.


State Election Legislation

In 2020, 389 new election-related laws were enacted across the 50 states. Before the close of the Q1 2021, 208 new bills had already been signed into law – in only 24 states.  After substantive challenges to election integrity leading up to the 2020 election, and in light of significant overreach by Democrats in Congress to federalize election laws, 2021 will be a year of dramatic legislative battles and litigation to reshape the landscape of election law across the United States.

In order to reverse the damage of 2020 and combat the intent of the Biden presidency, the American Conservative Union will lead the effort to restore order to our elections and revive confidence their results.

We will testify in support of the right legislation and fight against the wrong legislation.

We will collect the evidence that was discarded in 2020 and allow people to evaluate it themselves.

We will create guiding principles for election reform and encourage legislators to sign pledges to support this reform.

We will work with legislators to change elections laws to ensure free and fair elections.  We will score the bills, support legislators who sign pledges and primary those who don’t.

And we will enable an army of grassroots activists to engage their legislators, collect evidence from local courts, write editorials and call in to radio shows to make their voices heard.
