Election Reform Bill May Get House Vote This Week

The Senate is also considering reforms.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said an election reform bill could get a vote as early as this week. The bill, presented by Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Zoe Lofgren of California, had yet to be introduced early Friday afternoon. 

The legislation would reform the way electoral votes are counted in presidential elections, a response to the January 6 incident at the Capitol in 2021. Both Representatives Cheney and Lofgren sit on the House Select Committee that is investigating the Capitol incursion.

The two legislators released a statement, saying, “The Select Committee has been considering legislation recommendations based on its findings concerning the January 6 attack and will share those soon. These will include a bipartisan approach to the Electoral Count Act.”

Some of the same reforms were included in legislation introduced by Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Joe Manchin of West Virginia in July.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer as they consider bringing the reform legislation to a vote.
  • For members of the Senate as they discuss possible changes to the counting of electoral votes.
  • For election officials throughout the nation as they prepare for the upcoming midterms.
