The America First Policy Institute (AFPI) announced on Tuesday that the organization will expand its reach by establishing the Center for Election Integrity (CEI).
“Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Center for Election Integrity work in the states to help them strengthen their state election laws and fight for the voting rights of their citizens,” said AFPI President and CEO Brooke Rollins.
The goal of the CEI will be to conduct research and develop policies in the field of election integrity as it undergoes profound changes, including technology and social media.
In establishing the new sector of the research institute, the organization detailed that former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell will serve as chairman.
“When it comes to our elections, we must have laws at the local level that make it easy to vote and hard to cheat. Every unlawfully counted ballot completely eliminates the lawful vote of someone who followed the rules, and we should be doing everything in our power to protect American elections. Without secure elections, the great American experiment will be no longer,” said Chairman Blackwell.
Additionally, former President Trump’s former re-election campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley will be the director of the CEI.
“The addition of these two powerhouses brings expertise and experience that is not only an asset to AFPI, but more importantly, to the American people,” continued Rollins.
The organization is working with Trump to file a series of lawsuits against Big Tech companies in an effort to protect American’s First Amendment rights.
