WASHINGTON, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) issued the following statement ahead of tomorrow’s vote by a joint session of Congress to count the Electoral College votes for the 2020 Presidential Election:  

“Our founders set up a system to give representation to ‘We, The People’ and ensure our voices are heard. With historic turnout, razor-thin margins, and dramatic changes to voting processes in the midst of a global pandemic, people understandably have many questions about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election. Unfortunately, many in the media and on the Left have sought to silence these questions and millions of people are still questioning their trust and confidence in our election process,” said McMorris Rodgers. 

She continued, “This week’s vote is not about overturning an election. It is about examining allegations of potential fraud, certifying that states are protecting election integrity, and ensuring people’s voices are heard. It is imperative that Republicans and Democrats work together to build trust and confidence in our elections so we can uphold the Constitution and preserve our Republic. That’s why this week, I will support the objections to Electoral College vote counts in states where there have been allegations of voter fraud and questions raised about the legality of changes to state election law. I will continue to fight for answers for the people I represent and make sure their voices are heard.”
