ACRU Amicus Brief Supports Supreme Court Arizona Voting Integrity Policy Win

With the recent successful filibuster blocking Senate consideration of the so-called “For the People Act,” the Supreme Court’s decision in Brnovich takes on added importance.

ACRU’s Protect Elderly Votes’ concerns about nursing home fraud confirmed

In a state where ballot harvesting is illegal, a remarkable coincidence occurred right before election day.

Official who sent ballots to dead people claims it’s their family’s fault

Arrogance and avoiding responsibility is no friend to vote integrity.
