The Voter Reference Foundation joins election integrity partners in urging Congress to support the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act. The SAVE Act would amend the 1993 National Voter Registration Act to require proof of citizenship to vote in federal elections. While it is a crime for non-citizens to vote, there is no federal requirement to provide proof of citizenship to vote in federal elections, rather it merely requires an attestation without any means to validate or enforce. Confidence in our election systems is paramount to improving voter participation and this bill would be an important step to improve the integrity of the process.
