The League uses its positions to advocate and take action on issues. Positions are reached only after study and consensus.
For months, President Trump has made unsubstantiated claims that millions of illegal votes were cast in November.
Without proof + he continues to perpetuate that voters crossed state lines to illegally vote in the 2016 election. It's time for President Trump to produce evidence of his claims.
Today Federal Election Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub has sent a letter to President Trump insisting the president produce evidence to back up his outlandish claims that millions voted illegally in the 2016 election.
That's why the League is joining with allied organizations and calling for the President to produce evidence to support his unlawful voting claims + or put these claims to rest.
We know that wide-spread voter fraud is a myth perpetuated to push election laws that restrict voting. We cannot allow false claims to drive policies that will limit participation in our election process.
Tell President Trump it's time to stop spreading misinformation and undermining voter's faith in our elections.
