The first meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity will be held on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, Room 350, 1650 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20502.  IT WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC VIA STREAMING ON LINE - https://whitehouse.gov/live

 

This meeting will consist of a ceremonial swearing in of Commission Members, Introductions and Statements from Members, a discussion of the Commission's charge and objectives, possible comments or presentations from invited experts, and a discussion of next steps and related matters.

 

Point to Consider:  Could this Federal Commission's scope and authority result in federal policy to undermine or impede the States' rights (as authorized in the US Constitution and Bill of Rights)  to manage, administer and run elections?  

 

Eight of the twelve initial Commission Members are comprised of state officials from Kansas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Maine, Ohio, Arkansas, West Virginia and Alabama which Americans trust will ensure protection of states' and citizens rights and to uphold the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.
