Today, the Research Group at Look Ahead America (LAA) released the Year One report card documenting state’s efforts to reform their election operations to restore public confidence.
Matt Braynard, LAA’s Executive Director, made the following statement:
Given how new our organization is, I’m very proud of our volunteer-driven efforts succeeding in getting forty-eight bills introduced across the country that are legitimate attempts to repair our election system. That eight of those bills have become law is even more astounding. We still have a long way to go, but we’re off to a great start.
Ian Camacho, LAA’s Director of Research, made the following statement:
We hope that with this report we can motivate more people in their states to help us introduce these election integrity objectives to their legislators and get them passed into law. It’s going to take a lot of work, but with more volunteers and funding, we’re confident that we can both fix and restore the public’s confidence in our broken election system.
From the report:
Across the country, forty-eight bills were introduced addressing our objectives and eight of them passed into law. This is an excellent record considering LAA started this effort in mid-2021 and given our limited budget. This success is largely attributed to our base of highly-motivated volunteers all across the country. And while some of the legislation driven by our objectives failed to pass, they have value as an initial step towards passage and serve as potential reference legislation for other states.
