Earlier this week, the House passed the For The People Act (H.R.1), a sweeping reform package that returns power in Washington to the American people.… This landmark legislation will fix what is broken in our democracy. It expands access to the ballot, reduces the corrupting influence of corporate money in political campaigns, and restores ethics and integrity in government. I’m especially pleased that it includes my proposals to make it easier to vote, require greater transparency from presidential candidates, and limit the influence of corporations over our government.

You do not have a right to vote.

The governing body of each election — Federal or otherwise — shall maintain the secrecy of ballot results until at least seven full days have passed from the Day of Election. This timeframe may be extended by law or in order to have the appropriate time to verify the results, but shall not be shortened for any reason. No member of the governing body of each election may share results or estimates of the elections during this timeframe under penalty of treason.
