Free and fair elections where every eligible person can exercise their fundamental right to vote is the cornerstone of American democracy. In order to ensure that every American is equally represented, it is vital to overcome efforts to subvert the will of the people—such as gerrymandering, voter suppression, and the undue influence of money in politics that undermines our democracy. The United States must also resist a rising threat: election deniers who promote conspiracy theories such as the "big lie" and who seek to undermine the basic fairness of U.S. elections.

CAP Action is committed to pushing back against the dangerous and regressive efforts that threaten U.S. democracy and keeping fidelity to foundational principles that will keep it strong: the sanctity of free and fair elections, the peaceful transfer of power, and a complete condemnation of any political violence or extremism. U.S. elections should be about giving everyone a say by ensuring that voters can cast a ballot freely, fairly, and safely, thereby making our multiracial democracy work for all of us and include all of us.
