Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson spoke before the U.S. Senate Rules and Administration committee Wednesday as it debates a series of voting rights bills. She said the 2020 election was conducted without widespread fraud, but that hasn’t stopped some Republicans from attempting to make voting more difficult.
“The election of 2020 is behind us. The war on democracy is escalating," said Benson. "And in addition to the ongoing efforts of democracy deniers to spread misinformation alongside continued attacks and threats against election officials, a new battlefront has emerged in state legislatures all across the country.”
