The 2020 election and aftermath showed again that our country desperately needs democracy reform. In the face of a global crisis, the states managed to put on the most secure and largest-turnout election in history. However, months of lies by former President Trump and others have undermined that success. Republican legislatures in many states are already moving to restrict voting and make it harder for people to vote, ostensibly to fight imaginary “fraud.” These are not the only threats to democracy. Partisan gerrymandering encourages the most extreme candidates, reduces representation, and discourages participation. Large donors dominate campaign finance, focusing candidates on the interests of the wealthy and again discouraging participation. The For the People Act addresses these and many other urgent election reforms. The Congress should pass it immediately.
