Sending Office: Honorable Joe Courtney
Deadline: Wednesday March 18th, COB
Current signers: Courtney*, Carson, Himes, Horsford, Phillips, Spanberger
I invite you to join me in supporting $3 million for the Department of Homeland Security’s Committee for the Centers of Excellence to fund a new Center of Excellence focusing on election security. Already, DHS and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) assist
state and local governments by certifying voting equipment for elections. While DHS and EAC offer cybersecurity services to states and localities, they do not currently conduct research on how election systems are manufactured. DHS is well-positioned to fund
this research through their Office of University Centers of Excellence program, and could create a new Center of Excellence focused specifically on election security, voting technologies, and election procedures.
If you are interested in signing onto this letter or have questions, please email Meghan.O’Sullivan@mail.house.gov.
