Election Integrity

Free, fair, and secure elections are a cornerstone of our republic, as is public trust in those elections. For this republic to survive — for representative government to mean anything — its citizens must have complete confidence that their vote counts and that their voices matter. That’s why Congressman Roy is fighting for elections that the American people can trust.

So far this Congress, Rep. Roy has:

  • Introduced H.R. 2343 to ensure only American citizens vote in federal elections.
  • Cosponsored H.Res. 1252 supporting nationwide efforts to count every legal vote.
  • Cosponsored H.Res. 1256 to support President Trump’s effort to count every legal vote.
  • Introduced an amendment in Judiciary requiring Voter ID for eligibility for federal grants

More from Congressman Roy:

  • Was the only member of the Texas congressional delegation to testify for election reform before the Texas legislature
  • Wrote and distributed a memo to Texas colleagues on election security needs
  • Called out the dangerous ploy of H.R. 1 in an oped with Reps. Budd and Hice
