VoterGA Backs U.S. American Confidence in Elections Act


ATLANTA, GA, JULY 10, 2023 – Georgia’s largest and longest run­ning elec­tion integrity
watch­dog group, Vot­ers Orga­nized for Trust­ed Elec­tions Results, (Voter­GA), announced its
sup­port today for the Amer­i­can Con­fi­dence in Elec­tions Act. The act, pro­posed by the
Com­mit­tee on House Admin­is­tra­tion of the Unit­ed States (U.S.) Con­gress, offers non-partisan
elec­tion integri­ty and trans­paren­cy pro­vi­sions not cur­rent­ly found in Geor­gia and oth­er states. 

The Com­mit­tee on House Admin­is­tra­tion (CHA), chaired by Rep. Bryan Steil (WI-01), has
been solic­it­ing input for what is known as the “ACE Act”, dur­ing the last few months. CHA
over­sees fed­er­al elec­tions, capi­tol secu­ri­ty and oth­er U.S. House admin­is­tra­tive activities. 

Voter­GA co-founder Gar­land Favorito explained how the act can help Geor­gians: “We are
grate­ful to Chair­man Steil and the CHA for adopt­ing non-par­ti­san trans­paren­cy provisions
we rec­om­mend­ed for Geor­gia and Amer­i­can vot­ers. New pro­vi­sions of the ‘ACE Act’ will
make pub­lic all mate­ri­als essen­tial to con­duct­ing post-elec­tion audits through­out the 22-
month fed­er­al record reten­tion peri­od. These include bal­lots, bal­lot images, cast vote records,
chain of cus­tody doc­u­ments, log­ic and accu­ra­cy test results and equip­ment certifications.

Both Democ­rats and Repub­li­cans have favored these trans­paren­cy pro­vi­sions for years.
Pub­licly avail­able bal­lots are need­ed to ver­i­fy ques­tion­able elec­tion results and detect
coun­ter­feits pre­vi­ous­ly seen in Geor­gia. Once the ‘ACE Act’ becomes law, Amer­i­cans will no
longer be forced to suf­fer through secret­ly count­ed, unver­i­fi­able elec­tions that divide the
coun­try because no one real­ly knows who won. That will help restore Amer­i­can con­fi­dence.

CHA first received noto­ri­ety for elec­tion integri­ty work in 2006 when Prince­ton Pro­fes­sor Ed
Fel­ten demon­strat­ed to the com­mit­tee how a paper­less Diebold vot­ing sys­tem of the type used
in Geor­gia could be hacked with­out detec­tion to change an elec­tion out­come. His Princeton
Uni­ver­si­ty demon­stra­tion team, includ­ing grad­u­ate stu­dents Alex Hal­der­man and Ari
Feld­man, con­duct­ed a mock elec­tion at the hear­ing. Pro­fes­sor Fel­ten entered three votes for
George Wash­ing­ton and then print­ed elec­tion results show­ing that Bene­dict Arnold had
elec­tron­i­cal­ly won the elec­tion 2–1 despite Arnold receiv­ing no phys­i­cal votes. 

Today, CHA will hold a live streamed press con­fer­ence announc­ing the “ACE Act” at 11:30
am (Mari­et­ta Din­er, 306 Cobb Pkwy., Mari­et­ta) and a full com­mit­tee field hear­ing on elec­tions confidence
at 2:30 pm (Turn­er Field Cham­pi­ons Club, 755 Hank Aaron Dr. SE, Green Lot)
Voter­GA is a non-par­ti­san, 501©3 reg­is­tered non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion cre­at­ed by a coali­tion of cit­i­zens work­ing to restore election
integri­ty in Geor­gia. We advo­cate for inde­pen­dent­ly ver­i­fi­able, auditable, recount capa­ble, trans­par­ent and tam­per proof elections
