Congresswoman Tenney Releases Election Integrity Bulletin Recapping the 2022 Midterm Elections

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22), co-chair of the Election Integrity Caucus in Congress, today released an Election Integrity Caucus’ Midterm Election Bulletin. In the Bulletin, Congresswoman Tenney details key takeaways from the 2022 midterm elections, including what worked in states like Florida and Georgia, and what did not in states like Arizona and Nevada.  

The Bulletin highlights Florida and Georgia as success stories of Republican-led election integrity initiatives. Each state put into place commonsense policies, such as stronger voter ID requirements and expanded early voting, to strengthen faith and confidence in their elections. In Florida, unofficial election results were released promptly on election night. In Georgia, a record 2.5 million Georgians turned out for early voting, rivaling presidential election turnout.

In the Bulletin, Congresswoman Tenney also highlights nightmarish election administrations in both Arizona and Nevada, which were recently rated as the worst state for election integrity by the Heritage Foundation. The Bulletin provides recommendations for the future to ensure Election Day does not turn into Election Month, including requiring voter identification when requesting mail-in ballots and maintaining updated and accurate voter rolls.

“Voting is one of our most sacred rights as citizens of this self-governing Constitutional Republic, and it must be protected,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “Florida and Georgia demonstrated how states can run free, fair, and secure elections that restore confidence in the process. Unfortunately, states like Arizona, Nevada, and California served as warnings for exactly what not to do. The Election Integrity Caucus will continue driving the conversation behind commonsense reforms to restore faith in elections and empower all eligible Americans to exercise the sacred right to vote.”
