Rasmussen, a top polling company, stated on Thursday morning that 61 percent of Americans want election reform in key swing states that were hotly contested in the 2020 election including Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona.
Other poll results indicate 51 percent believe there was cheating in the 2020 election, 55 percent support 2020 election audits, and 74 percent say that requiring a photo ID to vote is a reasonable measure to protect the integrity of elections.
On Friday, Arizona Senate Republicans are scheduled to release results on their long-awaited Maricopa County election audit. These efforts have sparked similar outcomes in other states, like Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Senate Republicans last week voted to subpoena the Pennsylvania Department of State for data regarding voter information – such as names, social security numbers, addresses, and driver’s licenses in the 2020 election. Other information requested in the subpoena includes communication between the Department of State and county election officials, poll worker training information, and a copy of the certification of the election results in 2020 and the 2021 primaries.
Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman said, “Either we better our laws or we dispel a lot of concerns that the people of Pennsylvania have,” according to reports.
Other states like Texas have taken a huge step towards drastic election reforms, including boosting protections for voter ID when it comes to mail-in voting and banning 24-hour voting at polling locations across the state.
To the American people, the polls show that election integrity is not just a partisan issue, it is something that both sides of the aisle can get behind.
