Swamp Stories Episode 20: Firewall

 “Already the council has made numerous national television appearances and penned several op-eds, laying the groundwork for a greater role in educating the public, and advocating for patience and trust in our institutions in the days that lie ahead.”

COVID-19 has changed many aspects of everyday life, including the way many Americans are voting. Because of this, people have increasingly begun to wonder about delayed election results, or contested outcomes, or even the possibility that a candidate may not concede.

But in the middle of all this, a group of well-respected Americans has come together to defend the integrity of our elections, ensure that every American’s vote is counted this November, and instill confidence that we can hold a safe, secure, and successful election this year — just like we did through both world wars and another pandemic. On our latest episode of Issue One’s “Swamp Stories” podcast, host Weston Wamp speaks with two members of the National Council on Election Integrity.

Listeners will hear from:

  • Former Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), Member of the National Council on Election Integrity
  • Former Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), Member of the National Council on Election Integrity
