LWV Statement on the Shut-down of the 'Election Integrity' Commission

1/3/2018 Washington, DC - League of Women Voters president, Chris Carson issued the following statement in response to President Trump's Executive Order terminating his 'election integrity' commission.

"Today voters win. We are pleased that the Trump Administration has at last dissolved their discredited 'election integrity' commission.

"As has been said time and time again, the purpose of this effort was to justify President Trump's false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 elections. This travesty of a commission was nothing more than a tactic of voter suppression and an unnecessary distraction from legitimate threats to our democracy.

"It is now time for our leaders to focus on the very real work of securing our elections against foreign interference, while making sure all eligible voters are free to exercise their right to vote."
