• The end of Trump’s election Commission is a victory for voters who value the security and fairness of our elections. From the start, this commission was focused on the wrong issues and led by the wrong people. 
     
  • President Trump has consistently made false claims regarding supposed widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election. These claims are dangerous and unfounded. The dissolution of the Commission ends the unnecessary distraction from legitimate threats to our democracy. 
     
  • Generations of Americans fought and died for our right to vote, the freedom to choose our leaders, and the right to speak up for our beliefs. Restricting a person's vote is taking away their freedom.
     
  • Now is the time to offer solutions that safeguard our elections and ensure that every eligible American can vote. Together, we can work with election leaders to improve the security and accuracy of our elections with solutions such as automatic voter registration and funding for new election equipment.
     
  • We must make voting fair and accessible so that all eligible Americans can have their voices heard and their vote counted. Without this, a democracy of, for, and by the people is but an empty promise.
     
  • Americans from many backgrounds know that our election system needs to be updated. We can’t let politicians use this moment to write even more rules to rig elections in their favor, and allow they to pick and choose who gets to vote. We need elections that are secure and fair.
     
  • Immediately after the dissolution of the commission, the Trump administration and de facto commission leader Kris Kobach stated the Department of Homeland Security would be asked to continue the commission’s work. Why would DHS want to continue efforts that lacked transparency and threatened the privacy of voters? So that work can exclude bipartisan input and be conducted in secret behind the closed doors of DHS. 
     
  • The League will remain vigilant in our fight to protect voters and ensure that our elections are free, fair and accessible. We will keep a watchful eye over further attempts to suppress voters at all levels and in all departments of government.
