Lummis Fights to Protect the Voice of Wyoming Voters

January 16, 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) joined Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and three of her colleagues in introducing the Constitutional Election Integrity Act to prevent rogue politicians and courts from disqualifying presidential candidates from the ballot and to ensure constitutional matters in this area are only decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. This legislation will ensure that elections in the Cowboy State are decided by the people of Wyoming, not lawyers and judges.

“Weaponizing state courts to remove candidates from the ballot not only undermines our political system but seeks to silence the people of Wyoming and circumvent their will,” said Lummis. “Our Founding Fathers fought to give the American people the freedom to elect their president; they did not intend for political activists to abuse our judicial system. The Constitutional Election Integrity Act gives the U.S. Supreme Court the authority to preserve this sacred right, and I’m proud to join Senator Tillis in protecting our elections from these overt displays of partisan corruption.”
