Close the Certification Gap

Marc Elias, Democracy Docket: “While most of the legislative focus has been on the registration and voting process, significantly less attention has been paid to another point of vulnerability in our election system – the rules for tabulating and certifying elections. The right to vote is hollow if it does not include the right to have your vote counted and, if your candidate receives the highest number of votes, to have her assume the office to which she was elected. Republicans are taking aim at this vulnerability. Since the violent insurrection on January 6, Trump and his allies have turned their attention to the state processes that are used to certify election results.”

“In a number of states, they are enacting laws and policies that weaken fair election administration and nonpartisan election certification. In Georgia, for example, a new law allows the state legislature to effectively control the counting and certification process – stripping the secretary of state of some of his authority as retribution for his handling of the 2020 post-election and certification process. It is clear that we need new safeguards to ensure a fair counting of ballots and certification of the winner.”
