In response to these challenges, the Niskanen Center advocates for U.S. democracy and election security policy proposals that strengthen our democratic institutions. By providing access to and insight on center-right democracy and election security information, Niskanen is integral in bringing Republicans to the table on various efforts, and in helping pro-democracy, pro-governance Members of Congress around the cause.
Several guiding principles inform our policy proposals for U.S. democracy and election security. First, we advocate for free, fair, and secure elections without arbitrary or oppressive obstacles to voting. Second, we stand for the separation of powers, the equality of the branches of government, and the system of checks and balances outlined in the Constitution. Finally, we are committed to the deliberative process of governance, bipartisanship, and compromise.
