TODAY @ 2PM: Hearing on Threats to Election Infrastructure & Voter Confidence
(WASHINGTON) – Today, January 20th, the Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, & Innovation, chaired by Rep. Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY), will hold a virtual hearing to explore ongoing challenges to election security in advance of the midterm elections. Despite the 2020 election being one of the most secure in United States history, the “Big Lie” about the integrity of the election results culminated in the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
The hearing will be an opportunity for Members to gain a greater understanding of the steps the Federal government should take in coordination with state and local governments and the private sector to ensure secure elections, combat dangerous mis-, dis-, and malinformation about elections, and promote voter access that will enhance confidence in election outcomes.
