WASHINGTON, April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board (CED) released the following statement regarding voting laws under consideration in states around the country:
The Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board strongly believes that transparent, fair, and accessible elections are fundamental to the confidence of US citizens in their government and its leadership, and to the long-term health of the US economy. State election laws that make it harder for citizens to exercise their right to vote directly violate the most basic tenet of democracy. It is incumbent upon election officials on the national and state level to work together across party lines to guarantee that election laws are designed to ensure elections with credible, reliable results, broad participation, and not designed to limit American’s ability to vote.
The Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board (CED) is the nonprofit, nonpartisan, business-led public policy center that delivers well-researched analysis and reasoned solutions in the nation’s interest. CED Trustees are chief executive officers and key executives of leading US companies who bring their unique experience to address today’s pressing policy issues. Collectively they represent 30+ industries, over a trillion dollars in revenue, and over 4 million employees. www.ced.org
