Subject: Secure our elections

Securing our elections against foreign intrusion is something we need to talk about as a country, and
your agency is responsible for leading the charge. We may not be able to stop every instance of foreign
lobbying and collusion, but at bare minimum we should at least try to act concerned about the
vulnerability of voter rolls and counting systems, especially at a state level. They should be much more
secure than they are.

The problem is that even if no one hacks the next election, the mere notion that they could have done
so can be be exploited to sow doubt on the results. This causes a lot of problems beyond just the fact
that our elections might be compromised.

Thank you in advance for addressing this and giving this matter your full attention.

Dear sirs/madams,
I understand that the power of the Federal government is limited when it comes to elections. Yet there
is no more precious resource that we have to ensure a free society, as the Founders envisioned in the
eighteenth century.

Please do everything possible to assure the protection of our election systems. Our country cannot
tolerate another debacle such as the Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

The HAVA act was passed in the wake of the election of 2000, but to the extent that its fruit was
directed to the purchase of electronic voting machines, it has been a backwards step. Those electronic
machines should be scrapped in favor of an auditable system, such as an optical scanning system atop a
paper ballot.

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

not trust the election results. To win by fewer than 80,000 combined votes from three traditionally blue

Subject: Protect the integrity of our vote by eliminating gerrymandered districting

Dear FEC commissioners:

Gerrymandering biases election results in both Democrat and Republican controlled states. It is
manifestly unfair to voters and must be stopped. Even though election districts are established by state
legislatures and not by the Federal government, the FEC can influence how boundaries are drawn
through research, publication of best practices, and through requesting federal action to nudge states
into adoption of those best practices.

- The FEC should ask Congress or possibly the NSF to fund 3 to 5 different research studies into
mathematical optimization of election district boundaries. At least one of these studies should be an
investigation of district boundary setting in other countries so that we in the US can identify and
benchmark international best methods. Other nations may have good ideas that we can adopt.

- With the help of experts, the FEC should down-select from available boundary optimization methods,
the most promising methods for defining minimally biased election districts, and then promulgate these
methods to the states. I recognize that "bias" may include partisan bias, racial bias, and possibly other
forms of bias. That's why I asked for research studies above, because there may be tradeoffs among
various kinds of bias when minimal bias is desired. State legislatures should know what they are deciding
on and how to use best practices to produce the best district boundaries.

- The FEC should ask Congress to pass legislation providing all states with significant financial incentives
to adopt one of the preferred methods for district boundary setting, across-the-board for local, county,
state and federal elections.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Dear Commissioners:

The FEC has a role to play in preventing in-person voter suppression and in procedural suppression of
cast votes at the level of ballot collection and counting. For example:

- The FEC should pursue Congressional legislation, or an executive order, requiring that identical
standards be applied to counting of provisional votes in all precincts and districts in the nation.

- The FEC should ask Congress to legislate partial financial support for states and localities seeking to
replace or upgrade old voting machines, and seeking to test existing voting machines for accuracy.

- The FEC should conduct or sponsor research into the most accurate affordable way to conduct vote
recounts, then establish detailed guidelines according to its findings.

- The FEC should establish procedures for statistical sampling of ballots to verify ballot counts after
elections.

- The FEC should request Federal funding to review existing guidelines at the state and local level for
verifying that voting machines are working correctly, and should promulgate the best of these methods
back to states and localities.

- The FEC should ask Congress to pass legislation providing states and localities with significant financial
incentives to adopt one of the preferred methods for voting machine testing, verification of ballot
counts, and recounting.

Dear FEC commissioners:

I'm appalled at the news of Russian involvement in our elections - not only in their theft and later
release of emails from the Democratic campaign, and their use of social media bots to magnify
emotionally loaded news items, but by their attempts to hack into election boards and access lists of
registered voters.

This third line of attack is something YOU can help to shut down now and to prevent in the future.

The US needs to keep voter registration rolls secure, clean, and up to date. This means:
- Local election boards need to be able draw on expert Federal-level help to upgrade and test their
security measures, and this effort needs to start before November 2017.

- The FEC should propose congressional legislation to assist states and localities with expenses of
improving their election cybersecurity.

- Any time someone is removed from a voter roll, or their identification is officially changed (e.g.
changing name, middle initial, address, birth date etc) the person must be notified and offered a chance
to approve or contest the change. This can probably be done in many cases through recording the
person's email address and sending them a survey link at which appropriate questions are asked. In
other cases a USPS mailing with included business reply envelope would be necessary.

Finally, I have seen numerous news articles arguing that the FEC has been toothless and inert for many
years due to hyperpartisan gridlock. I suggest that the FEC ask a legitimate bipartisan group, for
example the Problem Solvers caucus, to study its operation and propose improvements in the structure
and/or operation of the FEC.

With best wishes,

eliminate this from happening in future elections. These lines of inquiry should include, but not be

In addition, all future Presidential elections should require paper backups, and recounts should be
mandatory upon request by a registered voter of a precinct (or equivalent voting area). Voting is a right
in America, not a privilege to battered about as a toy by any political party. These recounts can be paid
for by a fund comprised of fees imposed on the campaigns of the candidates.

Honorable Commissioners,

I am writing to express my extreme displeasure and distrust of the current situation regarding our 2016
elections. It is apparent that the Trump team knew that Russia was helping their campaign. Yet they
never told the FBI and in fact denied knowing it or even that it happened. It's clear from the email to
Trump Jr that they did know.

Please investigate and help keep our elections fair.

Regards,

Lana F.

Subject: STOP RUSSIA MEDDLING IN U.S. ELECTIONS

Please follow Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub's six ways to deal with interference in our elections she
put forth in her memorandum from June 21, 2017.

As Commissioner Weintraub stated therein, "If we move on these six items, Americas elections will be
much better protected from their next, inevitable foreign assault."

PROTECT OUR ELECTIONS: 6 Ways

1. Receive open- and closed-door briefings. This is the first step we must take: To find out what the
situation is and identifywhat the threats are.

2. Examine @FECs enforcement function. Do we have enough people to address foreign money? Do our
people have the skills theyll need?
3. Provide the public with assurances on integrity of @FEC data. We have lots of important data lets
talk about how we keep it safe.

4. Revisit corporate rule-making. The Commissioner proposed several plans to keep foreign money from
seeping in through corporations. Please revisit.

5. Determine whether we need additional rules. Lots has changed since #CitizensUnited. Our rules
havent kept pace.

6. Develop legislative recommendations. If we dont have authority to write something into a rule, we
have to ask Congress for new law. Soon.

Please, as a citizen of this great United States of America, and as a tax paying contributor to making the
U.S. run with integrity in accordance with our Constitution, I ask that you implement these six steps
immediately.

Thank youand God Bless America.

Sincerely,

Ann C.

Subject: Election integrity

Dear FEC:

Like most Americans, I am deeply concerned about the integrity of our election systems, and the threats
of foreign interference and cyber-espionage.

(1) Foreign interference:

As countless news articles have detailed, the majority of US states and counties use older voting
machine technologies that can be easily hacked; many use systems that have no paper trail. We know
that the Russian government accessed voter registration rolls in many states, and the possibility of
disruption and widespread disenfranchisement in the 2018 elections is urgent and terrifying.

What if we have an election and no one trusts the results?

The FEC must step up.

(2) Campaign finance:

The FEC must also enforce laws regarding campaign finances and financial disclosures. The uncontrolled
use of super-PACs and dark money is eroding American democracy. To date, the FEC has utterly failed to
enforce existing laws, making Super-PAC coordination" with campaigns constant fodder for late night
comedy.

To the Federal Election Commission,

It is incumbent upon the United States to conduct fair and free elections, including ensuring that those
elections are not influenced in any way by foreign governments or their agents. Perhaps the best
possible way to ensure this is to move to a national vote by mail system as proposed by Senator Wyden
of Oregon. This ensures that there is an unhackable paper trail for every vote and that every citizen has
the same opportunities, regardless of mobility, employment, or other issues.

Hello Federal Election Commissioners -

I am very concerned about the fact that the Intelligence Community has said that there was no fraud in
our 2016 election, but that the Russians hacked our election and election equipment in 21 states. In
addition, the $4million budget for the Election Assistance Commission has been eliminated, at precisely
the time when we need this commission.

I urge you, the members, to take the Russian threat seriously, and to safeguard our election equipment
and process in advance of the 2018 and 2020 elections. We need paper backups for all of our votes, we
need automatic voter registration (upon a person turning 18), and we need our equipment updated and
the software encrypted and protected.

under the rug, the ramifications on confidence of our foundational election process as a democracy will

Dear FEC Commissioners,

Protection of US elections from foreign attack, whether via technology or finance, is imperative in
preserving the United States as it was founded. Donations to candidates need to be fully transparent, so
that the public knows who is financing and supporting campaigns, and elections need to be safeguarded
against attacks.

Thank you,

Election scandal is going to do nothing but disenfranchise more voters than there already is. PLEASE

Good afternoon,

elections. If the 2016 presidential election has shown us anything, it's that foreign adversaries will stop
at nothing to create chaos and destroy our free and fair democratic process (the very basis of our

Hello

It has recently come to my attention that today the Federal Election Commission is considering whether
to act on any information regarding potential foreign interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

How can this even be a discussion? How can you, as the Commissioners designated to oversee and
protect the electoral institutions in the United States, even for a moment be considering not acting upon
information that a foreign entity interfered with any election in the United States? You must act to
protect our elections. You must act to protect our very sovereignty.
And if those aren't noble enough, maybe you should act to protect your own jobs, because what exactly
is the point of a Federal Elections Commission that doesn't actually attempt to oversee a federal
election?

Dear Commissioners,

Along with many other American citizens I am deeply concerned with the emerging evidence of
tampering with the 2016 presidential election, including interventions directed by foreign state
operatives. Our system is already fragile, with a patchwork of differing systems, outdated technology,
lack of backups to electronic voting machines in some states, and the real impacts of gerrymandering.
We need extra protections now more than ever. I ask you to show strong leadership in this moment and
make every effort you can to protect the integrity of our election system. There has already been a
stunning erosion of trust, both here in the US and globally. Restoring credibility to the system is
imperative for domestic security.

Thank you for you service and attention to this matter.

Greetings.
I am a resident and registered voter in Athens, GA.

I am extremely concerned about foreign interference in our electoral process, particularly from
Russia and its proxies. While there still seems to be no proof of direct ballot count manipulation there
have been numerous examples of voter data theft and systems hacking. That voter data can be used for
identity theft as well as for better targeting of advertising and outright propaganda.

I realize that much of the strength of our electoral system is due to its distributed nature and

Dear Commissioners,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing as a citizen from Chicago writing to express my support
for Commissioner Weintraub's memorandum encouraging the FEC to maintain free and fair elections
unadulterated by potentially hostile foreign powers. I hope that the rest of the commission will take

To the Commissioners of the Federal Election Commission,

I am writing to ask you with all seriousness and urgency to do everything possible to protect and
improve the security and integrity of our voting system in the US. I was concerned several years ago
during the second Bush administration when electronic voting machines came into wide use, particularly
in Ohio, of a sort that had no backup and left no paper trail. Now with the evidence before the relevant
intelligence organisations that Russia has interfered in our national elections in 2016, it is urgent that all
voting places utilise the sort of technology that allows for the maximum accuracy and for high-quality
backup in case of recounts. If that means that the US must return to paper ballots, so be it. I respectfully
urge you to do whatever is required to protect our democracy. It is, after all, a precious and fragile
inheritance and we owe it to Americans of the future to hand it on in good health and with robust
systems for its continued health.

Respectfully,

Nancy W.

Subject: Keeping the American voting system secure

Dear FEC Commissioners:

The most disturbing thing to me about the whole Russia-Trump collusion mess is that ALL of our
intelligence agencies agree that the Russians tampered with our voting process, and nobody seems to
be focusing on how to prevent that in the future. I assume you are making this a priority. If not, you
should be.

My information comes purely from news sources, not intelligence agencies, but what I have read is that
Russian meddling came in two forms: 1) hacking, and 2) the spread of false negative stories about Hillary
Clinton. With respect to the first one, they not only hacked the DNC system, but it appears they also
tried to hack into voting machines themselves in certain states. Apparently our state-by-state
fragmented system helped us stay secure. It should stay that way. I would also support having the actual
voting machines not connected to the internet at all. Are they? There is no reason for them to be
connected.

I don't know what to do about the second one -- nobody does at this point -- but a joint task force with
the big social media companies would be a start. They need to take their role in this seriously.

To reiterate, I would like you to make tampering with U.S. elections by foreign powers your number one
priority.

Respectfully,

Priscilla E.

To all at the FEC:

I am writing to insist, as a taxpaying American citizen, that you do all in your power to protect our
election infrastructure. As you know, we were attacked by a hostile foreign power in last fall's election.
The DNC was hacked, as well as some local elections and Republican primary candidates.

This is an intolerable violation of national sovereignty. Experts have been warning us for years now that
we were not prepared, and the attack they warned of occurred. Hostile nations like Russia and China--
as well as hostile non-state actors--will not stop now that a visible victory against the American people
was won.

This means it's on you to do what's necessary to ensure that (1) we have a paper trail in place for each
voting county in case a recount is needed and (2) our voting system is as safe as possible from attack by
2018. We expect the FEC to do its job and ensure a credible 2018 midterm can occur without any
foreign or other interference.

Commissioners,

I write today because I am worried for my country and because nothing is more critical to maintaining
democracy than free elections. I would say fair elections are also required, but I am past the point of
expecting fairness from our gerrymandered politics. However, the loss of fairness, compounded by the
loss of freedom? That simply cant be tolerated.

Unfortunately 2016 made obvious to many of us that our elections are extremely vulnerable and are not
secured from foreign interference. For me, Election 2016 was a second, almost as painful, 9/11. I
watched as American institutions failed to protect us from foreign adversaries. As I see it, its your
responsibility to ensure the United States of America does not slide, as so many countries around the
world have, into a democracy one built upon fraudulent elections. Failure to do so will not destroy
the USA, just hasten its rapid decline into Banana Republic status. I fear we are already there because I
am very familiar with the characteristics of said republics, and I recognize them in my own country now.

Nevertheless, I will remain hopeful that all is not lost, yet. But, please, do everything possible to repair
the lack of confidence so many of us now have in our election systems, our processes and their
outcomes. We are at a crossroads. I hope you choose the right path.

Dear Commissioners,

I write to urge you to take action to protect upcoming elections.

After the recent revelations about election interference, and particularly about Georgia 06, as a citizen
Im concerned about the integrity of upcoming elections. The following are my concerns:

* How can we ensure that our elections are fair, when gerrymandering appears to be a common
issue?

* How can we ensure that everyone who is eligible can exercise his or her right to vote?

* How will we protect against foreign interference from affecting election outcomes?

* How will we prevent propaganda and fake news stories from affecting election outcomes?
* How will we protect our ballot boxes from hacking?

Granted, these are not easy questions to answer. But they are valid questions. And the public deserves
to know how you, as commissioners, intend to address any and all issues to ensure fair and democratic
voting takes place. It would seem that your body could take some actions to further protect our sacred

how bout do your job?

you know, as opposed to letting treasonous GOP collusion with russia during the upcoming midterms go
unfettered

as you did during the 2016 elections.

as if the laundry list of voting atrocities in this country isn't long enough already:

cross check

gerrymandering

voter id laws

the endless other racist attempts to disenfranchise your fellow americans from participating in the
political process.

COUNTRY BEFORE PARTY

just a thought.

i mean last time i checked this is still america ... i think.

or we can just let that murderous thug putin continue to govern this once great nation.

I am writing to request that you act to protect U.S. elections from outside interference. The
vulnerability of many states' election procedures to possible hacking is of great concern to me. I am
lucky enough to live in Washington State, where we have paper ballots that can be re-counted and
confirmed if necessary. But many jurisdictions in other states have only electronic voting with no paper
trail to confirm the accuracy of the counted votes. This terrifies me. Please do everything in your power
to assist such jurisdictions to acquire and implement more secure and "confirmable" voting systems.
This is of the utmost importance to our national security and for the continued existence of our
Constitutional republic.

Good morning,

After doing research on voter fraud, and the percentage that this is a problem I believe it to be a non-
issue.

I know the current way of thinking is that multiple people are voting in multiple states. This has not
proven

the case.

A software program is being applied to voter registration rolls in some states to determine duplicates.
As
written the program is good. As applied, with lack of attention to middle initials, or dates of birth,
eligible

voters are being deleted from the rolls.

You job is to oversee elections. Not to sway in the wind of opinion.

I am always distressed at the number of voters who fail to go to the polls, especially during local
elections

when their vote carries more weight. However, I am firm in my belief that deleting citizens from rolls;

gerry-mandering to create favorable voting blocs; or saying buses cannot bring senior citizens or
impaired

citizens from their nursing homes; or ANYTHING that has the hint of inhibiting citizens from voting
should

be dealt with swiftly.

There is no wide spread voter fraud. No proof has been found. And any wishful thinking by any political

group that they can inhibit certain voters should be viewed as illegal.

Please be sensible in your thoughts about what kind of tweaks we need on our system. Gerry-
mandering and

the Electoral College are currently the areas that need your attention in my opinion.

I appreciate your attention and diligence to these matters.

Sincerely,

Kathy Z.

To whom it may concern,

I'm writing to express my belief that our electoral system is a vital facet of our country, and it must be
protected as a priority, regardless of other partisan considerations.

It should not need to be stated, but without confidence that American elections are free from undue
influence, be it foreign or domestic, there can be no confidence in the outcome.

Indeed, much ink was spilled about then-candidate Trump's remarks questioning the veracity of the
elections.

Now, with new reports coming to light about how the infrastructure may have been compromised, it is
more imperative than ever that these vital systems be protected, and hardened against future intrusion.

Again, without confidence in the electoral process, there we the people cannot have confidence in the
electoral results.

A of confidence which can threaten the very bedrock of American political tradition: the peaceful
transfer of power from one administration to the next.

Dear Sir(s) or Madam(s),

I am writing in reaction to a recent revelation regarding Russia's interference with the election system in
the United States of America.

I am a professional American who is currently working and living in rainy, Communist Ho Chi Minh City,
Vietnam. The state of the shameful weather and lack of democracy often leaves me with an empty and
nostalgic longing for my home. This past November, I had the fulfilling experience of exercising my right
to vote from abroad. This was a rewarding reminder that, even when not present physically, I am always
capable of contributing to my country's future because of my rights as an American. However, the
admission by the President's son regarding his involvement with Russia to curb our election has left me
doubtful of what it truly means to be a democratic society.

In good faith, I am unable to watch my country go the way of lesser nations which give way to the needs
of their people in favor of political strategy or personal gain. Therefore, I would like to demand that your
office help uphold our great country's dearest values by investigating the current allegations regarding
Russia's requested involvement in the election system and consistently condemning any further
tampering with the process.

Yours sincerely,

The interference in our recent election by Russia strikes at the very heart of American democracy, and
puts at risk our freedom. The FEC must forcefully act on this issue.

In addition, the recent admission by Donald Trump, Jr. that he met with a foreign national to receive
information that would be widely perceived as a "thing of value" requires close scrutiny, in an open
setting.

Please put country over party, and ensure the integrity of our elections. No matter which party is
helped, foreign interference in our elections must be met with a American resolve. If it happens to one
party, it can happen to either, and to factions within parties. Today, the Democrats were a target,
tomorrow it could be a Republican that balks the Russian agenda. In fact, who knows if the Republican
primaries were impacted? How else could the Russians ensure their man was in power?

Hello,

I heard that your commission is considering today whether you should even take action to prevent
Russian (and other) hackers from meddling in our elections.

Frankly, it is ridiculous that this is even a question. We already have so much evidence that they are
hacking into both major parties, government agencies, and even hacked into some voting systems
during the 2016 election. I know that elections are run by the states and that makes the situation even
more dire. What if states who choose to not fund these processes well get hacked?

I don't even know if I can trust the next election. They're already in! How can you even consider standing
idly by? Please don't. America's democracy is in real danger and if we don't do anything about it, we are
playing right into Russia's hands. We are counting on you to advocate for the United States. This is worth
whatever financial investment it takes.

Like most Americans, I am deeply concerned about the possibility of Russian interference in America's
2016 elections. I am writing to you today to express in the strongest possible terms that the FEC needs
to step up and do what is necessary to investigate and then, if warranted, charge ANYONE who has
broken the election laws of the United States. The fact that the perpetrators may be uber-rich and
"connected" should not move you from your course in holding them accountable. I serve as an election
judge in my county, and our sacred duty to protect our election process is vitally important in
maintaining a legitimate representative republic.

Please pursue your investigation with vigor, and follow the law and the facts, where ever they may lead.

Subject: Mandating voting systems that are secure and that can be reliably audited is critical to
preserving our democracy

My Fellow Citizens:
We are all and should all be aghast at Vladimir Putin's hostile actions against our elections, and, thus,
our democracy itself.

The evidence, from Donald Trump Jr.'s emails showing he and likely others in the Trump campaign
willingly colluded with Putin's regime to install Donald Trump Sr. as our President, to our intelligence
community's assertion that they also have evidence of a wide-ranging campaign to do so, must spur us
to action!

We know Putin's spies and hackers and their agents hacked voter rolls and sought to hack voting
machines. Yet we have not conducted any studies that are public to reveal what level of success they
may or may not have had. Indeed, in many states, the voting apparatus makes such an evaluation
impossible. How can we have confidence in our democracy if we cannot know if Putin and his
murderous, criminal oligarchy are hacking our election?

We must mandate that states secure their voting systems, and that they are able to be audited. This
means we need paper ballots that can be scanned and counted by hand if necessary. Electronic voting
machines that do not create a paper trail, and receipts for voters to confirm their choices, are of no use
in the modern era. Nor are machines running outdated and un-patched software, which can be easily
hacked.

Your job is vital. If you fail, so does our democracy. But know, you have strong support from your fellow
citizens in this endeavor. Also know that those of us who have been thinking about it understand that
this effort to secure the vote will require significant funding and a lot of sunshine to succeed. The job is
not small, but, again, it must be done.

I support you in this, as do all patriots aware of the problem. We will support you in your efforts to
secure the vote, and we will be watching.

Sincerely,

Seana O.

Dear Commissioners,

I am writing to express grave concern about the interference - asserted by the FBI and other
government agencies - in our election system by Russia (and others), with potentially the active
participation of the Trump campaign.

Our election system is literally the heart of our democracy. If there is not integrity in this system, there
is no democracy. There is abundant evidence that our voting systems have been hacked into, and that
Russia sought to influence the 2016 presidential election. It appears that they did this to undermine
Americans' confidence in our democracy, to weaken our country, and possibly to help elect Donald
Trump.

If you do not conduct an aggressive, comprehensive investigation into intrusions into our election
system, you are abdicating your most basic responsibility. Already, your past indifference to the
influence of dark money on our elections has caused damage to our democracy. Your inaction here
could cause more significant and potentially irreparable harm.

PLEASE. ACT.

I am very concerned about the integrity of our elections. It's apparent to me that the 2016 elections
were compromised by foreign interference to distort information to influence people to either vote for
Trump or sway them against Hillary Clinton.

This, in concert with Republican strategies to purge voter roles and other forms of voter suppression
make the results of this election suspect all across the spectrum of offices across the country. The result
is that Congress is flagrantly acting on behalf of an extremely narrow set of interests and with
completely disregard of the desires of the voting public. They refuse to meet in open dialogue with their
constituents because they feel no sense of obligation to them. Their elections are fixed.

This is not how a democracy is supposed to work. You have the authority to fix this. Please have the

Subject: Protecting our elections, our independence and voter confidence

Hello,

My name is Courtney. I'm from Los Angeles. Thank you for making this e-mail address.

Our elections make the United States a special country. Being able to vote on propositions and on local,
state, and federal leaders is a sacred right that defines our nation.

If there was ever a time in the history of our country to step up and protect our voting system, it is now.

Last year, Russia interfered with our election process: through dissemination of misinformation,
influencing the electorate, encouraging partisan tribalism, and - at the very least - attempting to access
voter data. I am afraid that they did more.

That's why I, and my fellow voters, need your help. Without you to look into this, voters are not only left
vulnerable to further attack, but our government will have signaled to me and many others that our
vote does not matter - that the United States accepts foreign interference in our elections and does not
want to take any moves to safeguard me. If the United States accepts foreign interference, then it will
only get worse.

That thought is scary and demoralizing both on a global and on a personal scale. I'm scared. I'm sad. I'm
losing faith. I feel like I don't matter.
There are a lot of things I as a common citizen do not know. For instance, I have heard that electronic
voting machines do not keep records. Being in California, I am lucky enough to have semi-paper ballots
with scantron technology and a paper trail, but I have many friends in other states - swing states - that
are not so lucky; whose votes cannot be audited.

Our voting system is in crisis. It has been attacked. I do not know why there would be a question
whether or not the FEC should investigate this. I would imagine, in my faith in the government, that this
is exactly the type of situation that the FEC was designed to investigate.

I have heard, and I hope I am wrong, that there is at least the appearance of a somewhat of a partisan
divide along what the FEC should do about this. I absolutely believe that every single one of you is a
patriot who has nothing but the best interests of our country at heart. But should the FEC decide not to
investigate this, it would be perhaps the most blatant and inexcusable lack of action to protect our
republic during this time of crisis; one that will puzzle historians studying the sudden downfall of our
great nation.

This year I have found myself very actively engaged in the political process, writing heartfelt appeals to
different commissions and departments via direct contact and public comments. I have also felt
powerless; in many instances it has been made clear that my voice and the voices of my fellows have
not been heard. Please be the difference.

Free, fair and independent elections are the only way our country can survive. Investigating foreign
interference in our elections is the only way - the only way - that our country can restore free, fair and
independent elections - because as of last year, ours aren't anymore.

I beseech you one last time. Please protect me.

Respectfully,

Courtney L.

This is the MOST critical infrastructure we have, and should be classified as such.

We also need paper ballots or a similar, verifiable auditing system and mandated audits to ensure

Greetings.

I'm writing to voice my deep concern with the state of our electoral process. It was bad enough when
we had to worry about rampant voter suppression and outlandish claims of voter fraud, but now we
have to worry about foreign influence? What insanity is this?!
We absolutely cannot allow foreign interests to interfere with our elections. We must know that our
elected representatives serve no other master than their constituents. It's terrible and outrageous to
think that anyone in any position of power could be indebted to a foreign power who might then use
that leverage and force an American official to do conceivably anything.

We know for a fact that the Kremlin worked to tamper with our presidential election. Do your duty and
act on this knowledge, for the sake of your country.

To the Federal Election Commissioners,

The very foundations of our country rest upon the ability of the common citizens to decide our own
destiny. That freedom to decide, for good or for ill, should not be allowed to tainted by any influence
seeking to subvert our democratic process. We need strong campaign finance rules, vigorous
enforcement of those rules, and robust protections against foreign influence. In our most recent
election, there is broad intelligence community consensus that a foreign power (Russia) has attempted,
and to some degree, succeeded in affecting our election results. This can NOT be allowed. Regardless
of party affiliation, our first allegiance should be to our country and the principles that make our country
great. This is not the Republican States of America nor the Democratic States of America, this is the
United States of America!

If your commission chooses to not act, especially in light of recent revelations of campaign(s) seeking
foreign influence and assistance, this will be a grave mistake and the grossest example of negligence. I
trust that this will not be the case and that you will act with honor and purpose as you deliberate and
plan your path forward for the good of our country.

Respectfully yours,

I am a American citizen living in Phoenix, AZ (85032). I am dismayed that I find it necessary but I am
writing today to request that the FEC strongly protect the integrity of our election process.

Free, fair and open elections are the true cornerstone of our Republic. Without them all other American
principles are lost and we make a mockery of our Constitution and the claim to be a free society.

The 2016 elections have done possibly irreparable harm to the faith of American citizens in our electoral
process. 90% of Americans believe that our system was infiltrated and more than half believe that
interference went beyond mere propaganda and voter suppression. Without confidence in our
elections, Americans lose confidence in our government and institutions. We are seeing the devastating
effects of this today.

At this moment in history, you are the most important guardians of our democracy. I ask that you put
your country above all else and strongly protect the integrity of our elections making sure that every
citizen can exercise their right to vote and that their votes are counted.

Subject: Foreign meddling

Dear FEC Commissioners,

Please try harder to block foreign meddling in US elections. There are quite obviously a LOT of
loopholes.

For example in our current president's FEC filings from May-Sept 2016, there were many occurrences of
'Moscow', 'Russia', 'St. Petersburg' (multiple spellings), and 'Czech Republic' written in as the city for
States that obviously did not have these cities. Also, the zip codes are all over the place (many did not
seem to exist/were not 5 digit numbers), with a great portion of them from '99999' (which seems more
like a transaction number), which obviously does not exist as a real zip code. Also, there are an
enormous amount of microtransactions (greatest occurrence was $2.4) and negative decimal
transactions, as well as "refunds" without any corresponding donations from the same donor, which did
not look normal. Where are these micro and large refunds going? Who are all of these 'retired'
contributors? How do you screen all of these LLCs and SuperPacs? Also, with all of the hacking of
American voter rolls and private information (as well as the institution of the President's new Voter
Integrity Commision), how do you ensure that the money is coming from the actual donor described in
the filing?

In conclusion, this is a TREMENDOUS problem... believe me. You are the most critical organization that is
protecting the freedom of our democracy and the integrity of our American elections. Please investigate
and fix these issues, or risk abdicating your solemn responsibility to protect us from hostile domestic
and foreign actors.

Best,

Michele W.

Hi,

Protect American Elections from Foreign influence Now! Do you like free speech? Do you like freedom?
Do you like elected representatives being responsive to the will of the people? Then ffs investigate the
extent of the foreign interference with the Elections in 2016 and Do Something to make 2018 more
secure. Do something to reassure people that they are voting in a free and fair election. Do something to
protect the vote for your country, the United States of America, land of the free, home of the brave,
from sea to shining sea.

Some ideas for what you might do. Ask cyber experts how to protect the voter registration databases.
Pass a rule making safeguards of the databases mandatory. Move to paper ballots. Automatically
register every eligible voter at 18. Require vendor security testing for the contract to house registration
data. Create a voter security audit team to check the security of the databases.

These are some ideas off the top of my head. I am sure you can find more. This is America. Americans
should elect the representatives not foreign spies and hackers.

Without a transparent election process which includes fair districting and the utmost of integrity, and

Greetings.

I am a resident and registered voter in Athens, GA.

I am extremely concerned about foreign interference in our electoral process, particularly from Russia
and its proxies. While there still seems to be no proof of direct ballot count manipulation there have
been numerous examples of voter data theft and systems hacking. That voter data can be used for
identity theft as well as for better targeting of advertising and outright propaganda.

I work in the electric utility industry and am very familiar with cyber-threats both foreign and domestic.
Russia is a particular problem, though attacks from China and Korea are also common.

I realize that much of the strength of our electoral system is due to its distributed nature and the role of
the states, but I think we need both state- and federal-level initiatives in place.

I ask that the FEC place a high priority on ensuring our electoral system is safe from cyber-attacks and
from any other form of foreign interference.

Thank you for your time, attention, and service to our country.

Dear FEC Commissioners,

I thought I might write a measured, data-based email to you today. Ive decided to go with an emotional
plea, instead.

Protecting democracy itself is your duty. If there is wrongdoing in an American election, it is your job to
investigate and take action. You must make sure that people who were properly registered to vote were
actually allowed to vote, not arbitrarily removed from the voter rolls.

PROTECT our country. PROTECT our rights as free citizens of America. PROTECT the fundamental notion
that one person is entitled to one vote. PROTECT against foreign governments. PROTECT against internal
corruption. PROTECT against the undue, harmful effects of money in politics. PROTECT your country,
ladies and gentlemen. PROTECT against the powerful abusing the powerless, or the elite taking
advantage of the unwitting. Protect against all these, and PROTECT THIS GREAT COUNTRY.

Do the right thing! Do it not because you will reap some reward, or praise, or material gain, or fame. Do
it not for a heavenly reward. Do it not for any other reason than because it is THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
PERIOD. END OF STORY.

Most of all, do your JOBS please.

Do your jobs when it is difficult. When you face criticism. When you have to enforce against your own
party. When you have to call out your own party, or the powerful.

Please.

Dear sirs and madams,

I understand that today you are going to discuss whether you will try to protect our elections from
attack by foreign organizations.

I urge you to say, "We will."

Our intelligence agencies agree that the Russian government took steps to interfere in the 2016
election. Whether it succeeded is less important, here, than whether it tried to. It did.

That was an assault on the Constitution. You swore to protect the Constitution, did you not? The exact
wording, by Federal law, was to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all
enemies, foreign and domestic," was it not?

We must defend the Constitution against all those who try to disrupt its operation. Today's tempest is
about Russia. If we ignore what they have done, then tomorrow's crisis could be about ISIS, or its
successor. There is no sound reason to go limp about this.

I am a registered voter in Missouri's Second Congressional District. I am a retired Naval Officer. I sailed
on Strategic Deterrent Patrols on a nuclear ballistic missile submarine to protect this nation and the
Constitution. As a retired military officer, my own oath to defend the Constitution remains active for the
rest of my life.

I urge you to defend it, too. I urge you to resolve to protect our elections from foreign interference.

Dear FEC Commissioners,

I am writing as a constituent and voter from Natick, MA to request that the commission make its top
priority the full investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election. The Donald
Trump Jr. emails are the latest egregious evidence of collusion with Russian forces to tamper with US
elections, and the American people deserve a full inquiry into the legality taken by the Trump campaign
team (and family) and into the many falsehoods and lies of omission perpetrated since. This issue is
central to our country's ability to hold free elections, and thus central to our democracy.

Thank you for your time and attention to this very important matter.

With gratitude,

Joseph K

Dear Sir/Madam:

I am a registered voter in Michigan. I am extremely concerned about the actions of Russia, and their
coordination with the Trump campaign in the 2016 Presidential election. I am asking you to do
everything possible to secure our future elections from influence by a foreign power.

Electronic voting machines and ballot counters cannot be trusted with the important job of properly
recording citizens' votes. We must return to paper ballots, and count them by hand instead of optical
scanners. Most precincts are small and this would not be difficult. Countries around the world rely on
this method and it works great for them. For example, hand-counted paper ballots are used in the
Netherlands and France, and they just completed successful elections where no vote altering was
detected.

Please perform the duty that has been assigned to your office and insure the integrity of our elections.
You failed in 2016, but you must be ready when 2018 arrives.

Sincerely,

Beth L

3) *Every* citizen is automatically registered from the time they are 18. No more voting registration
deadlines. No more closing of DMVs in minority communities.

4) Make it a law that everyone votes. (That's what they do in Australia and it *works.*)

Commissioners,

While the supreme court has ruled that corporate money in politics can continue virtually unfettered, I
believe that the rules on foreign intervention are a clear bright line. With the admission ADMISSION
that the highest level of Trump campaign was willing to take a meeting from an adversarial foreign
country to aid in our election for the purpose of receiving opposition information crosses that bright
line, and at the very least, shows incredibly poor judgement even if their relative newness to the
political theatre made them unaware of the laws

Opposition research is something that has significant value supported by the fact that campaigns
dedicate significant resources to develop this information and therefore violates the letter and the
intent of the current law.

I believe this warrants some clear statement of position on such behavior and sanctions at the very
least, and a referral to the inspector general as an appropriate outcome.

Thank you.

Subject: Investigate Russian Interference

I am a proud American who has never missed voting in a federal election. I believed until now that I was
participating in free and fair elections every time.
The evidence that Russia interfered with our 2016 presidential election is incontrovertible. Whether
actual election machines were hacked or not, Russia overtly sought to influence the election through a
methodical campaign of disinformation, computer hacking, and contact with the Trump campaign.

You are sworn, as the top election officials in this country, to uphold the principles of free and fair
elections untainted by such interference. You are sworn to get to the bottom of this disgraceful breach
of trust with the American people. Your obligation is to us, not to Trump or his family. Your obligation is
to us, not to the Republican Party. Your obligation is to us, not to any political agenda or axe your
political leaders want to grind.

As a proud American, who has never missed voting in an election, I must respectfully insist that you use
every single power granted to the FEC to investigate the Russian interference, determine the extent to
which the Trump campaign knew about/was involved with/ directed Russian interference, and
determine whether there is a financial connection between Trump and his family and his family
businesses and Russia (whether government or so-called "private" interests in Russia). I respectfully
demand that the FEC release the results of the thorough investigation, and then write election rules -
about transparency, about funding, about disclosure - that can help stop what happened in 2016 from
ever happening again. As a start, the FEC needs to issue a rule that all candidates for president must
release all tax returns including all schedules. Further, candidates for president must disclose all
business connections without exception within and outside of the United States.

Thank you for being American patriots. We are not a monarchy. We do not have a king and his court. If
you allow what has happened to stand, you are flying in the face of 200 plus years of democracy, and
everything our founding fathers and mothers stood for. Please be patriots instead.

My name is Elizabeth S and I would like to register a comment on foreign interference in our elections. I
urge the FEC to do whatever it must to not only identify what happened in the most recent election with

happening again. As Senator Marco Rubio said last year during the election cycle regarding WikiLeaks:

"Today, it is the Democrats. Tomorrow, it could be us. I will not discuss any issue that has
become public solely on the basis of WikiLeaks. As our intelligence agencies have said, these leaks are an

Is crucial. Every voter has the right to expect his or her vote count and not be tampered with. If a
candidate or party has to turn to voter interference to win, then that candidate or party needs to
consider why they need that kind of assistance to win.

The core of American democracy is free and fair elections. The 2016 election showed that our election
systems are under attack, probably by foreign governments. State voter repositories were targeted by
online attacks. Voting machines and collection systems probably were attacked. This is simply
unacceptable in our democracy.

The FEC must guarantee that voting systems are secure from attack and that information from voting
systems is not used to manipulate elections. Please take appropriate actions to ensure fair elections.

Dear sirs and madams,

I am writing to you as a concerned citizen. Our democracy depends on safe elections so that the voices
of the American people are heard. Since the Citizens United decision we have seen a rise in outside
influence and money in our elections. Recent events have indicated that Russia meddled in our 2016
elections through attempts to hack election systems, steal our data, plant targeted misinformation and,
now, potentially by attempting to gain leverage with our presidents former campaign staff and family.
This past years election is the most egregious example of what we have suspected could happen but
which this commission failed to prevent. This commissions continued failure to propose and pass any
rules that protect our elections is 1) completely partisan and 2) in direct conflict with its mission. If you
fail to take any substantive action in the near future, the FEC will simply fall into line with the rest of the
Republicans willing to tolerate this assault on our democracy at the expense of being in power.

There is nothing patriotic about allowing any outside influences be they foreign or corporate in our
elections. I am demanding that the FEC take action to protect our elections. This situation will only get
worse if no action is taken.

Sincerely,

Susan M

To whom it may concern at FEC:

Something MUST be done about a foreign goverment, an adversary at that, not only attempting to
influence our elections through social media, but specifically trying to hack voter registration rolls and
voting machines. Clearly the Trump administration does not hold this as a priority, especially as more
evidence emerges that they may have conspired with Russia in this undertaking.

YOU and your agency are responsible for doing what is right for our democracy. It must be protected at
all costs. The fact that your commission is divided on party lines about ANYTHING is ridiculous. There is
right or wrong. Legal or illegal. Democracy, or no democracy. You choose. Do we stand up for our right
to have free and fair elections, or do we hold our tails between our legs while Putin mocks us? While
Putin destroys our democracy, do we cower or do we fight? Will there be repercussions? Punishment?
Justice? Security in knowing our information and our rights are protected in the next election?

This is not, by any means, a partisan issue. It is an American issue. An issue of our freedoms at stake. Will

Subject: Election Cyber Security


It is quite clear that the 2016 presidential election was hacked. We don't know the impact of that
hacking because the beneficiary of the hack won and is in power to control the flow of information that
is released to the public.

THIS MUST NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

The very fabric of our democracy was attacked. To do nothing, with full knowledge of this security
deficiency is unethical, and hopefully criminal. This country was built on a foundation of democracy.
That foundation is at stake. Perhaps this illegal activity helped the candidate that you voted for in the
latest election, but perhaps it won't be the next, or the one following or many more to come.

Lack of security in elections renders them pointless. Who we will allow to decide the winning
candidates? The ones with foreign ties that have the most effective cyber criminals, or the people of the
United States of America?

Do not let your country down. History is watching.

Subject: Stop foreign meddling

Dear Madams and Sirs of the FEC:

I understand that the FEC is meeting 13 July to discuss whether or not it should get involved in
preventing foreign meddling in elections in the future. The revelations over the past few days make it
obvious that such safeguards are URGENT. There should never be an opportunity for a foreign power to
meddle in U.S. elections.

It strikes me that having paper ballots, counted twice, is perhaps the best safeguard against foreign
meddling. It would also create a paper trail, so to speak.

Also, I would stress that the President's demand to get voter rolls is a thinly veiled attempt at culling
minorities off the rolls. As has been substantiated by many studies, voter fraud is extremely rare. The
U.S. already has one of the lowest voter participation rates in any "democracy." Why make it harder for
people to register and to vote? If anything, election day should be on Sunday, as it is in most
democracies.

Sincerely,

Noriko M.

Dear Commissioners,

As each day of the 2016 campaign passed, it was obvious that enormous effort & funds were going into
false, damaging stories on Clintonand I was shocked at the way my normally clear-headed friends
were buying it.

The stories were absolutely despicable, gross lies, and they overpowered all of my liberal friends feeds
until they held onto Bernie as if for dear life.
If I suggested that Clinton might not be so bad, my friends lambasted me as if I were on the side of evil.
While my mother was dying, close friends filled my FB home page with obviously fake Clinton stories,
grotesque Photoshopped images of her, and scathing remarks.

Please look deeply into this situation. And please dont stop there, but investigate whether any funding
and contributions were being made under various other guises, besides the right-wing media, as well.

Thank you sincerely,

I do not want to sound like a Neo-Luddite but to protect our democracy and the American way of life,

I have just been informed that you are all meeting tomorrow to discus interference from foreign
countries/people in our U.S. elections.

As an 70 year old American, I have watched this country hit lows and highs. I believe right now is the
lowest Ive ever seen this country fall. We have lost our place on the planet. We have given it to China
and Russia. We were created as a country as a beacon of truth and Justice. Nothing is an icon of that
more than our beloved Statue of Liberty still bravely standing in a New York harbor.

Liberty Enlightening the World. As a small child I remember my grandparents taking me to see her. I
remember being able to climb up all those stairs to the top. Looking out across the landscape, America,
I was so proud of my country even at that tender age. My grandmother's family escaped Germany and
did not suffer the fate of millions of others, or I would not be standing there. I clearly remember the
story she told me of their arrival in America, and seeing Liberty and knowing they were safe at last Free
to be. Free to live. Free to pass their undying love for this country to all their grandchildren. Equally
etched in my memory was my grandfather, standing there with so much pride for his country. His family
had come from England in the 1600's. My ancestor walked with giants. He was the Governor of New
Jersey, John Reading. The first girl child born in New York was born into my family. I could go on with
tales of scalping's by Indians, hard won wars, fought in every war this country has been involved by the
brave men in my family, from the Revolutionary War to the present.
My family has literally shed their blood and given their lives so America would always be "Liberty
Enlightening the World". They all knew to a one how important Democracy was to the world. How
could they not offer their lives for their children and their descendants? I honor them every day I live,
by surviving and trying to do with at right in the world. And Democracy is no less important to me than
it was for them.

There was no "money" ruling my country then, only human lives. All who have given their lives for this
country are now standing there in spirit, watching what has become of the country they loved enough
to die for. I'm quite sure they are all weeping.

Millions of Americans find our government now to be a mockery of what they died for.

We simply cannot allow our fragile democracy fall into the hands of despots, fascists, authoritarians, and
ruthless leaders that have no regard for a single human life.

This great democracy has been given into your care. You MUST not allow foreign agents and countries
destroy what is America. I urge you with all my heart not to accept voting interference by anyone. It is
your duty, this duty has been handed to you by the millions that have died to defend it.

Please don't make their dying meaningless.

Do what is right in the world. Please let Liberty continue to enlighten the world.

mail, then compiling lists of voters, called caging lists, from the returned mail in order to formally
challenge their right to vote on that basis alone.

FELONY NO VOTES = A whopping 5.85 million Americansincluding 1 in 13 black votersare prohibited


from voting because of felony convictions, according to the Sentencing Project
<http://www.sentencingproject.org/issues/felony-disenfranchisement/> . This has got to stop. When we
deny those who have been imprisoned the opportunity to vote, what we are essentially saying is, Your
voice doesnt matter; you dont matter. That makes re-entry into society kind of hard, doesnt it? Its
almost as if somebodys trying to kill your spirit.

Subject: We DEMAND paper ballots

Hello Sirs and Madams,

I'm a marriage and family therapist, but I write as an extremely concerned citizen today.

Regardless of politics, I IMPLORE each and everyone of you to take the Intelligence Community's reports
seriously regarding Russia's interference in our elections.

Russia's aim is clearly to undermine the pillar of the western world: Our democracy. The US isn't the
only election that they've interfered with, and YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART TO PROTECT US.

I don't give a living shit about Republican or Democrat. And neither does Russia. Russia wants to erode
the public's faith in our institutions, and they're making pretty short work of it.
The choices YOU all make could be a brick to stand up to tyranny, or could pave the way for 1984 to take
over the entire world.

1. Please for the love of everloving Christ, take this seriously. The only way to ensure that our elections
are valid is for there to be a paper trail. GET RID OF VOTING MACHINES.

2. My household demands that some sort of system be put in place where some states go through
mandatory audits to ensure election integrity.

Who cares if it takes 2 weeks to certify a vote? WHO CARES? When compared to half the country
wondering if our elections are valid, and the threat that our country could end up revolting into martial
law?

Yeah, those are real possibilities. SO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

Parting words from Comey: "They Will Be Back."

Sincerely,

Kathryn K.

Hi all,

Just saw this new comment line is up and running, congrats. Given the abysmal results of our elections
this past year, I hope that the FEC is going to do everything in its power to enfranchise voters against the
wishes of the GOP, protect our election system from hacking by other countries, and work to destroy
the Republican-led gerrymandering that has robbed hundreds of thousands of the power of their vote.
It'd be great too if you could, you know, prevent foreign agents from running for office, but I figure if
you can work on those first three points, the true patriots of the USA will be able to keep that from
happening.
Oh, and I know it's a long shot, but how about setting up federal money for elections and making it so
people can't run campaigns on multi-million dollar donations from corporations and ultra-rich citizens?
Maybe if we level that playing field and get real campaign finance reform we won't get as many corrupt
politicians who are in the game only to fleece taxpayers and quid pro quo their way around with
businesses and Wall Street.

Do some work, folks. I'm counting on you!

Thanks,

Paul M.

Please make it a top priority of the commission to block foreign election interference.

I'd note that, in his farewell address, George Washington said "history and experience prove that foreign
influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government"
(http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/washing.asp). As the senate reads his farewell address every
year, I'd encourage the commission to re-read the whole address. It's clear Washington felt foreign
influence was one of the greatest dangers our republic faced.

I hope the commission will head his warning.

Thanks for your time and consideration!

Hi-

I just finished reading Commissioner Weintraubs memo (June 21). Thank you for taking this threat
seriously.

Im pleased to see you attempting to address Russian interference via Facebook and other targeted
advertising platforms. This has been of concern to me for a while, and a concern that I was not sure
could be properly addressed outside of FEC policy and election law, and it is an immense relief to read
Ms. Weintraubs comments. I would expect that giving ad- and media-targeting companies with a US
presence clear guidelines and legal requirements will give them the ability and incentive to push back
against the types of targeted campaigns we saw last year.

As a former Russia analyst and a current tech-sector security professional, I consider disinformation
campaigns (especially, especially, Russian campaigns) to be the single biggest threat to US stability.
Please continue to take this threat seriously, and thank you for being willing to address it.

Sent: Thursday, July 13, 2017 2:35:50 AM

Subject: Russian election meddling and voter suppression

Dear Commissioners:

The Founding Fathers were rightfully especially concerned about foreign

influence on our governmental institutions. James Madison cited examples

of foreign influence on government dating back to ancient times and into

his modern era. Alexander Hamilton, in "The Federalist 68", described

the corruption that comes from "the desire in foreign powers to gain an

improper ascendant in our councils" as one of the "most deadly

adversaries of republican government."

You, in your official capacity, are charged with ensuring that the sorts

of foreign influence exerted by Russia in the 2016 election are fully

understood and DO NOT RECUR. I hope you take this duty as seriously and

solemnly as possible, and take action to prevent any such recurrence.

But preventing foreign influence is not of itself enough, because there


are enemies domestic as well as foreign attempting to disenfranchise the

American public. More states have passed thinly-veiled voter suppression

laws and regulations in 2017 than in 2015 and 2016 combined.

In our democracy, the "one person one vote" paradigm is sacred. For

without it, how can we call ourselves a representative democracy at all?

Every eligible person who is artificially denied the ability to vote is

a black mark on our country and on our system of governance. We are on

the brink of not just stalling on voting rights progress, but of rapidly

slipping back into an updated version of the days of Jim Crow, poll

taxes, and other such abominations that we had perhaps naively thought

relegated to a flawed past.

I, and so many others like me, only request that you do your job and, as

much as is within your power, right the ship of state before it leans so

far over treacherous seas that it founders. We are on the precipice of a

steep and slippery slope, and it is up to all of us, but most especially

to you and your colleagues, to pull us back from the brink.

I beg you: Do not hesitate. Do not falter. Do not favor any one

political party or idealogy over any other. Bring back open and fair

elections, elections absent the disgrace and danger to our national

security of foreign interference.

Sincerely,

Robert Curtis J.

Dear Commissioners,

The greatest freedom we have as Americans, what we can boast, what makes our country wonderful, is
the ability to choose our leader. We have -- and deserve -- fair, honest, and open elections. We deserve
to be able to trust the process, which means well-trained poll workers who will serve as stewards of
each American's vote. We deserve paper ballots, or voting machines that cannot and will not be hacked.
We deserve fair districts, where each vote counts equally and the district lines drawn on the map
actually make sense, that are not laser-precise and excise voters who will vote against whoever is in
power.

Keep our elections safe and fair. That's your job, your important job, upholding the basic tenant of what
makes America great.

Dear FEC Comissioners,

Like many Americans, I have concerns about the integrity of our elections. It is imperative that people
have the chance to speak their minds with their vote. This is why we have expanded voting rights to
women, people of color, the poor, and so many other disadvantaged communities. Currently, there are
two big things threatening that: election hacking from foreign nations and gutting of the Voting Rights
Act.

Throughout the years, foreign nations have attempted to sway the outcome of our elections.
Sometimes, that means they outright change votes. The voting machines currently in use are easily
hacked, and it would not be difficult to count paper ballots improperly. Other times, that means hacking
to get classified information about candidates. They then use that to create smear campaigns to target
candidates they do not like. Not to mention they mess with voter rolls and delete people from it.

The gutting of voting rights is also nefarious because it comes from within our own country. The
government has been making it harder for people to vote, particularly through the use of Voter I.D.s.
These policies harm those that most desperately need the protection of the government: people of
color and the poor.

All in al, it comes down to this: please help restore integrity to our elections. No matter which party you
identify with or which ideology you hold, it will be attacked if this continues. So please, stand up and do
the right thing. I salute you, and so do fellow Americans. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful
day.

Russsian business contact offering Russian governmental help for Donald Trump's Presidential

that this campaign has seriously violated Federal Election Laws many times.

Dear Commissioners,

Yours is perhaps the most solemn and important role in our democracy going forward. The US could
once serve as a model for the world. It is up to you to bring us back to that place.

Voter fraud is not an issue. No one has ever presented evidence that "illegal voting" is present in any
significant way in our elections.

Voter suppression is an issue. Ample evidence exists of purging, cross-check and other means of
disenfranchisement. Registering and voting should be enabled by government, not inhibited.

Cyber attacks are the greatest threat. Given our cyber-war with Russia, we should be on red alert.
Instead, our president has shown no evidence that he will move to protect our elections. It is up to you.

Hello, I have been asking this question a lot-- And the vast majority of my responses have been in favor
of this. The people want to trust those who work

in our interests, but it is difficult when we see policies that do not benefit us. It is difficult when we see
such a divide. Let us trust our representatives. This is the most efficient way! What do you all think
about this:

All political entities (campaigns,persons, etc.) and persons holding public office/serving in the interest of
we the people ought to be required by law to present their annual tax returns(& financial disclosures). I
am curious as to your thoughts in relation to American interests/accountability.

To hear that all of our IC agencies agree that Russia meddled in our election and now the confirmation

government lawyer, it is heart wrenching. This is my adoptive country. If the FEC doesn't punish

Dear FEC Commissioners,

As you meet tomorrow, I affirm that it is of vital importance to our country that you act to protect our
elections from foreign influence.

The FEC should be briefed on all of election-related matters that are briefed to our legislative and
executive branches. The commission should be funded properly to protect our elections, and it should
report to the public to reinforce that the process is free & fair, which should encourage participation.

We may need new rules, post Citizens United. Please examine whether or not our rules are sufficient,
and act accordingly. Work with congress to pass any rules that require their authority.

And I don't know if it's possible, but good lord, in my opinion, all elections would be better run with
paper ballots, as we have here in Massachusetts!

Thanks for your good work -- sometimes paddling against the tide -- to ensure the integrity of our
elections. No less than our democracy is at stake.
