US Rep. Steil: Proud to join American Confidence in Elections Act
WASHINGTON, DC – Today Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01), senior member of the Subcommittee on Home Authority Elections, joined senior member of the Home Authority Committee Rodney Davis (IL-13) at the introduction of the American Confidence in Elections (ACE) Act. To highlight the introduction of the bill, Steil participated in Ranking Member Davis’ roundtable with state and local election officials and key stakeholders. The law introduced supports electoral integrity reforms that respect the constitution, federalism and conservative principles. The ACE bill will also address the challenges faced by militaries and foreign voters.
“Americans deserve confidence in our elections. We must ensure that every eligible voter can vote and that every legitimate vote is counted. The ACE Act is an important step forward in boosting voter confidence and protecting the integrity of the elections. As a ranking member on the Election Subcommittee, I’ve focused on finding policies that make voting easy and cheating harder. I look forward to working on the implementation of many of the measures included in this important legislative package.”
Congressman Bryan Steil serves on the House Administration Committee and is a ranking member on the Subcommittee on Elections.
Steil is an original co-sponsor of the American Confidence in Elections (ACE) Act, written after receiving input from election administrators across the country. The ACE Act gives states the tools to help implement sensible election integrity regulations, such as: B. maintaining voter lists and access for election observers. The bill also takes the important step of cracking down on ballot collection and would also prohibit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations (Zuckerbucks) from directly funding official voting organizations.
