Below is a press release from Alabama Congressman Jerry Carl.

U.S. Representative Jerry Carl (R-AL) issued the following statement regarding his cosponsorship of the American Confidence in Elections (ACE) Act, which is comprehensive legislation to address issues in our nation’s federal elections.

There’s no doubt the 2020 elections had issues, which is why the ACE Act is critical to restoring our election integrity by providing states with important tools to help with the delivery of ballots, verification of signatures, using voter ID, giving observers access to the process, updating voter lists, and conducting post-election audits.

With the Democrats’ constant attacks on the integrity of our federal elections, I’m proud to join my colleagues on this important effort to strengthen our elections and guarantee their security. Our elections should always be free, fair, and secure, and this legislation will go a long way to ensuring Americans that their vote matters. It’s time to restore confidence in our elections.

The ACE Act prohibits:

  • Non-citizens from voting and allows states to use REAL ID as proof of citizenship
  • Same-day registration and ballot harvesting
  • Federal funds for payments in support of congressional campaigns
  • Contributions and donations by foreign nationals in connection with ballot initiatives
  • Funding for a potential “Disinformation Governance Board”

The ACE Act requires:

  • Photo ID to vote in person or request an absentee ballot
  • Annual list maintenance
