Three fixes Congress should make to save democracy

Here’s a new Washington Post column summarizing my takeaways from the conference that Rick organized and led last week. These are the three italicized headings for the congressional reforms that would help reduce the danger of election subversion specifically in the context of the 2024 presidential election:

Modernizing the antiquated and ambiguous Electoral Count Act of 1887.

Focus on enacting those parts of the Freedom to Vote bill that directly safeguard the honest counting of votes and certification of results.

Changing election rules to require that members of Congress win a majority in the general election, not just a mere plurality.
