Demand Your Republican Representative Vote “YES” on Reforms to the Electoral Count Act
Republicans paid a price for their radical agenda in the midterms. Democrats beat the odds and outperformed expectations in a historic way, but there is a high risk of a Republican takeover of the House which means we must urge MoCs to stay in session and keep working. Congress has from now until January 3, 2023 (Swearing-In Day) to deliver on a long list of priorities.
Republicans are feeling some pressure after their poor performance in the midterms, so now is the time to keep the pressure on them. We are asking MoCs to stay in session and pass popular reforms to the Electoral Count Act before the end of the year.
Republicans say they support bills like reforms to the Electoral Count Act, which is likely to be included in the year-end omnibus package. This bill would help prevent future January 6-style attacks by clarifying the process Congress follows to count Electoral College votes for president, and would eliminate the vulnerabilities to the current law that Trump loyalists tried to exploit to keep him in power. These reforms are a critical step toward restoring our faith in our election system and the country’s ability to peacefully transfer power after a presidential election.
There’s no reason why Republicans should refuse to support these reforms. After their extremist views cost them the Senate and limited them to a razor-thin majority in the House, now is their chance to prove they’re still capable of legislating on things that voters actually care about. While some Republicans are expected to vote yes on ECA reforms when they come for a vote, we doubt that Republicans will bring popular bills for a vote when they are in power next year. That’s why we need to move now, while Democrats still control the legislative agenda in the House.
