Kendra Horn on Government Reform

 

 


Matching grants to expand early voting opportunities

Q: What measures do you support to improve and secure elections and voting in our country?

Kendra Horn: We should explore every option to make registering and voting convenient and secure. Following the 2000 election and all the problems associated with it, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) to financially assist states and improve their election infrastructure. Given that technology never stops evolving, we should invest again so states have reliable and secure systems and follow best practices when it comes to election security. Aside from improving our electoral infrastructure, I support using federal matching grants to allow states to expand early voting opportunities. I also believe Oklahoma should take a closer look at other states who have 100% vote by mail systems, which allows voters more time to scrutinize their ballot and reduces barriers to voting like work schedules, child care and transportation.
