Washington, DC – The Bipartisan Policy Center announced seven new members to its Task Force on Elections, which is charged with developing innovative, bipartisan policy solutions to the most pressing issues in election administration.

I’m excited to welcome our new members and continue our efforts to improve the voting experience across the country.”
