Conservative Roundtable on Safe, Secure Elections with Vote by Mail

Organizer: Business for America

Listening to President Trump's statements, you might think that all Republicans oppose the expansion of vote by mail — even in the face of an ongoing public health crisis. However, many conservative political activists and Republican elected officials support enabling more people to cast their ballots from home.

Please join us to learn why vote by mail is not a partisan issue — and in fact there are many good reasons for conservatives to champion its expansion. On the webinar, you'll learn why an increasing number of Republican secretaries of state and local election officials support vote by mail. We'll discuss the conservative perspective on election security, fiscal responsibility, and a commitment to preserving our republic. We'll also debunk the myths around absentee voting, such as proof that vote by mail does not favor any particular political party.
