The Business Alliance for Effective Democracy, a select group of major U.S. corporations seeking improvements to the policies and laws that impact our democracy, applauds the Senate for passing legislation to reform the Electoral Count Act within the omnibus spending bill.
The orderly transfer of power is a keystone of U.S. democracy. This long tradition provides the necessary stability for our economy to flourish and inspires confidence in our system of government across the globe.
Passing bipartisan reforms to the antiquated Electoral Count Act before the next presidential election is essential to restoring confidence across the county and around the world that the United States’ electoral processes are free, fair, and respected. The strong support of the Electoral Count Reform and Presidential Transition Improvement Act from Republicans and Democrats in both chambers is a testament to the strength of our democracy and its representatives.
