Election Integrity Committee

Joe Gruters

Chairman, RNC Election Integrity Committee
Chairman, Republican Party of Florida

Open, fair, and honest elections are the bedrock of our democratic institutions. Every eligible American citizen deserves to have faith that their vote will be reliably counted in order to preserve a government that is truly by the people, for the people.

The 2020 election, conducted in the midst of a once-in-a-century pandemic, was an anomaly. The coronavirus pandemic gave politicians an excuse to upend our voting processes with haphazard executive orders, anti-transparency measures, and eleventh-hour changes to our sacred democratic process.

That's why the RNC is launching the Committee on Election Integrity, dedicated to making elections transparent again. In the coming months, we will work tirelessly to promote common-sense, bipartisan reforms at the state level and fight a federal takeover of our elections. We'll also build out an expansive Election Day Operations program, backed by nationwide legal efforts, to ensure the protection of the ballot box.

The RNC won't stop fighting to protect the vote and ensure that Americans have faith in the integrity of our elections.

We want to hear from Republican and other concerned voters about what you think the RNC should be doing to protect the integrity of our elections. Please feel free to share your thoughts below so the committee will have your input when developing its recommendations. Look back here for our findings and recommendations.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Announces New Election Integrity Committee

 

WASHINGTON D.C. – Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the formation of the new Committee on Election Integrity dedicated to restoring election transparency and ensuring voters have confidence in future election processes.

“Election integrity is one of the most critical issues we face as a Party and as a country. What we saw this past election – states undoing important safeguards, bypassing the proper legislative processes, and changing election laws in the eleventh hour – was deeply troubling and brought chaos and uncertainty to our sacred democratic processes. As RNC Chair, I will not sit idly by and the Party will respond. The RNC will play a crucial role in restoring confidence in our elections, promoting election integrity, and recommending best practices to ensure that future elections are free, fair, and transparent.” – RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel

This past cycle, the RNC ran its most comprehensive legal strategy to date, spending more than $30 million on election protection efforts in battleground states across the country. The Committee on Election Integrity represents a renewed focus on continuing this important work and fighting Democrats’ unprecedented attempts to change election laws.  This committee will work closely with state parties and other stakeholders in our elections across the country on voting policies and best practices, such as ensuring poll watchers are allowed to properly observe counting processes, meaningful voter ID laws are codified, and all Americans have faith in our elections process.

The RNC Committee on Election Integrity will be chaired by Florida Republican Party Chairman Joe Gruters, with Ashley MacLeay, National Committeewoman from the District of Columbia, serving as Co-Chair. The full temporary RNC committee will consist of 12 men and 12 women, representing the RNC from 21 states and the District of Columbia.
