MEMORANDUM

Posted: November 22, 2022 04:14 PM
From: Representative Christopher M. Rabb
To: All House members
Subject: Establishing an Election Integrity Board to Combat Election Disinformation
 
Election denialism and disinformation have become dangerously prevalent in our country. 
 
Nationwide, over 100 election-denying candidates won primaries this year. Such individuals continue to perpetuate unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud, despite evidence confirming that our elections are highly secure. This rhetoric falsely impugns the legitimacy of our elections for the sake of partisan politics, sowing doubt about the validity of results.
 
In a politically diverse state like Pennsylvania, everyone should have full confidence in our electoral system. We must combat election disinformation to increase trust in our democratic process. That is why I will be introducing legislation that ensures candidates for public office will accept election results and creates a board to monitor and combat election disinformation.
 
Pennsylvanians deserve elections where legitimate issues are the focus and quality candidates present their positions in good faith. Baseless claims and conspiracy theories meant to disrupt elections have no place in the democratic process.
 
Please join me in fighting against election disinformation by co-sponsoring my legislation. Help to ensure public confidence in the legitimacy of our elections.
