“The times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations.”

Founder Samuel Adams recognized the sacred value of a citizen voted when he stated in 1781, “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote … that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.”

The Elections Clause of the Constitutional provides authority to Congress for setting the date of national elections, but cedes all authority for procedures and protocols to hold those elections to state legislatures. As such, states have the constitutional authority to ensure the fairness of elections through laws that protect the sacred vote of each individual voter.

There was a time in America where keeping a ballot safe and secure while demanding every voter provide confirmation of their identity was considered sacrosanct and widely accepted as an important protection of our democracy.

For several decades, liberals have initiated an ongoing assault of the fairness of elections. They do so in three primary ways: 1. fostering the false narrative that presenting identification to vote is “discrimination”; 2. encouraging liberal state legislators to pass laws that lessen ballot protections; and 3. finding progressive judges willing to step out of their lawful constitutional authority and make changes to codified election protocols.

ACRU has been at the forefront of election integrity work for over a decade. From suing Broward County, Florida and other counties to clean up their voter rolls to prevent fraud, to advocating for protections for seniors and military, ACRU has been a leader. Prior to the 2020 elections, ACRU worked to defend the integrity of votes of two vulnerable and at-risk voting populations — the nation’s senior citizens and our military—through our very active Protect Elderly Votes (www.protectelderlyvotes.org)and Protect Military Votes (www.protectmilitaryvotes.org) initiatives.

As 2021 dawned, a new threat has emerged to election integrity — the cynically named “For the People Act,” or H.R. 1. This federal legislation steals every aspect of state control over election procedures from our states. As one of its first 2021 projects, ACRU created a Fact Sheet about of H.R. 1 to educate the public on this legislation —which rattles the very cornerstone of our liberty.

American Constitution Rights Union will continue to fearlessly defend election fairness, vote integrity, and is willing to take on liberal legislators and media and “cancel culture” to ensure that the vote of every legal voter is counted and protected.

The National Popular Vote Movement

Imagine a country where only those in the big cities picked the president, a country where rural and middle America had virtually no voice. Sound like a nightmare? A well-funded campaign from the left, is 72% of the way to making that nightmare real.

Ranked Choice Voting is a REAL Threat to Fair Elections

RCV’s signature promise is to deliver candidates that win true electoral majorities. But RCV’s version of “majority rule” is a mirage rendered by throwing out ballots and redistributing votes between candidates. In fact, so many ballots can be thrown out that winners sometimes do not secure a majority of the total votes cast in an election.

Ranked Choice Voting is Bad News!

December 5th, 2023|

Advocates are pushing Ranked-Choice Voting at nearly every local and state level. Why? Proponents claim that Ranked-Choice Voting allows voters to express their preferences for multiple candidates and ensures that the ultimate winner is the candidate with the most overall support rather than just the one with the most first-choice votes. While this may sound nice in theory, in practice, it’s a scheme allowing candidates with a minority of voter support to win through mathematical technicalities. Here's what you need to know about how Ranked-Choice Voting really works and the dangers it brings.
