ELECTION INTEGRITY (EI) BILLS ONLY

Per the request of LD2 Senator Steve Kaiser, a complete history of all the EI Bills were compiled from both Chambers.  There are a total of 190 EI Bills out of the 1,625 Bills introduced into both Chambers.  Attached is a copy of those Bills for your review.  I will be following each one of these through the end of the Session, besides the full compliment of the 1,625 Bills already being monitored.  Both sets of Bills will be sent out on or around each Saturday through the end of the Session.

I understand there are many Bills of interest to many folks.  IF there is a Bill that anyone wants to know about in detail, please advise and I will add them to my regular weekly Updates.  The above Bills have been brought to my attention numerous times, so I wanted to share with you the latest status.

CALL TO ACTION: Our Nation, our State, our Districts, our Legislators, and YOU, as our important voters have a voice in our Country today.  Speak up and you will be heard; stay silent and nothing changes – for good and for bad.  We are a Nation of Laws, whether it be from our Constitution or our holy Bible – we have two sets of Laws to follow.  My suggestion to all of you, is to follow the words of Thomas Jefferson:

“We in America do not have government by the majority—we have government by the majority who participate….  All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

Our Founding Fathers were brilliant.  When the Constitution was designed, there were, are 6 AMENDMENTS OUT OF THE 27 AMENDMENTS focusing on just VOTING!  If voting was not so important, why would these dedicated elected officials have devoted so much focus on this one issue?

Elections are up to you, and decided by you.  Vett each person well before putting them into any office, especially office’s that decide how we should live.

Lastly, all the Bills that are listed on the attached, will involve YOU in some way or another.  Let your legislator know how you feel in a professional and properly conducted manner.  Man or woman, Democrat or Republican, they represent you.

Thank you for reading and sharing with others.

Linda Brickman,
