Safeguard American elections

To the Editor:
Congress is currently considering passing For The People Act 2021. This act lives up to its name.

Among other protections for voters and voting, the bill provides greater oversight of all election system vendors (putting to rest concerns about faulty or rigged machines), requires all organizations involved in political activity to disclose large donations (greatly reducing the current ability of unidentified money to scream while most citizen voices are politely modulated), and prohibits voter roll lists from being purged as has happened in Ohio and Georgia.

Under the provisions of this bill, voters will be better protected. American elections will be significantly safeguarded from foreign interference, and the act of voting, which one might call the sacrament of democracy, will continue to empower and advance the democracy itself.

Please call your U.S. Congress members and ask them to vote for the For the People Act.
