Should Congress establish a commission to investigate the 2020 election?

 "This would create two different reports, one saying there may have been minor irregH.ularities but not nearly enough to change the results, as there are in every election because it is a human endeavor. The minority party in Congress would say ‘No, no, no, we think they’re significant.’ How does that restore any trust for anybody? That’s just more partisanship."

"I don’t think it’s going to matter how many elections commissions are put forward, as long as others like Donald Trump are continuing to put forth lies about the election." Source: Patrick Christmas (Policy Director, Committee of Seventy)

  "A recent poll of Pennsylvania voters determined that nearly half of voters do not have full confidence in the outcome of the election. This is unacceptable. We cannot continue every four years to have tens of millions of voters doubt the outcome of a presidential election." Source: Rep. Lloyd Smucker (Republican, Pennsylvania, District 11)


 "The beauty of the American experiment is the ability to freely question our processes and build upon lessons learned. We cannot move forward without looking back and scrutinizing the issues that led to millions of Americans losing trust in our election system. While every election has a modicum of fraud, the circumstances around the pandemic led multiple states to make rushed and perhaps ill-planned changes to their election systems weeks ahead of the presidential election. Simply put, Congress needs to act in a bipartisan fashion to examine the missteps--intentional or not--made this year in state legislatures across the country." Source: Sen. Tim Scott (Republican, South Carolina)
