Time is running out for election integrity reform in Missouri
- BY Sarah Coffey
Since early this year, Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft’s website has featured a countdown banner, indicating the days, hours, and minutes lawmakers have remaining to pass election integrity reform. With only a few weeks left in session, it should serve as a reminder to lawmakers that now is the time to act on election reform legislation.
As Election Day 2020 turned into election week, voters were left with more questions and concerns as the dust settled, and many walked away frustrated by and disillusioned with the process. Now we are in the final stretch of the 2022 legislative session — and the clock is ticking, literally, for lawmakers to secure Missouri’s elections with one of several reforms currently under consideration in the state Senate.
