Sinema Statement on the For The People Act

Jun 22, 2021

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema released the following statement:
“I believe the right to vote, faith in the integrity of our electoral process, and trust in elected officials are critical to the health and vitality of our democracy. I am proud to support the For The People Act because it restores safeguards that protect every American’s right to vote, reduces the influence of money in politics, secures our elections from foreign interference, and holds government officials to the highest ethical standards.”

In an op-ed Monday night, Sinema reiterated her support of the For The People Act—legislation she cosponsors—and also highlighted the risks associated with eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold to pass such legislation.
