We invite you to join us in cosponsoring H.R. 4990, the bipartisan Election Technology Research Act of 2019. We are increasingly concerned about outdated and insecure voting systems, as well as the potential for targeted cyberattacks on technologies that
have become essential to our elections. These issues present opportunities to leverage science and technology to create election systems that are more accessible, reliable, and verifiable. As states take steps to secure voting systems for the 2020 elections,
it is critical that we provide additional federal resources and support for voting and election technology research and standards development.
