Voting Rights

We Must Protect Election Integrity to Ensure That Every Vote is Counted Fairly
One of the founding principles of our party is ensuring every citizen has the right to vote. A century ago Republicans stood alongside women’s suffrage activists implementing it. We continue to support the role the Electoral College plays in our presidential elections.  We advocate for honest, open elections and support identification requirements at the polls to prevent voter fraud.


Republicans have a long and proud history of fighting for equal voting rights that continues to this day. One of the most important rights of American citizens is the right to vote—the right to have a voice in choosing who our leaders are and how our government should work. Republicans work to ensure the troops over-seas will always have the ability and right to vote while ensuring voter identification laws are enforced and strengthened to ensure fair elections.
