Voting is the lifeblood of our nation’s democracy. SIIA joins our member companies and leaders across corporate America in supporting efforts to make it easy to vote, and difficult to commit fraud, while ensuring confidence in secure, accessible and fair elections.
Tragically, many current efforts to secure elections will hamper the ability for all Americans to exercise this critical Constitutional right. These proposals will have a disproportionate impact on communities of color and others who have long suffered from actions – lawful and unlawful – that deny or restrict their vote. Our democracy works best when all of our nation’s citizens have the opportunity to participate – when every citizen has a voice and a vote. Ensuring equal and fair voting access is aligned with our organizational values of reducing racial inequality and increasing economic opportunities for all.
SIIA is the only professional organization connecting more than 700 data, financial information, education technology, specialized content and publishing, and health technology companies. Our diverse members manage the global financial markets, develop software that solves today’s challenges through technology, provide critical information that helps inform global businesses large and small, and innovate for better health care and personal wellness outcomes – they drive innovation and growth.
