Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman & Leaders from Only Citizens Vote Coalition Joining Speaker Johnson, Rep. Roy at Capitol Hill Presser Supporting Rep. Roy’s Election Integrity Bill TODAY


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today at 11:00am ET, Jenny Beth Martin, Honorary Chairman of Tea Party Patriots Action, along with, Cleta Mitchell from FAIR Elections Fund, and others, will join Speaker Mike Johnson, Senator Mike Lee, and Rep. Chip Roy at a Capitol Hill press conference to support Rep. Roy’s election integrity bill, the “Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act” (SAVE Act). The press conference will be the launch of the Only Citizens Vote Coalition. Other leaders from the coalition will also be speaking at the press conference.

The SAVE Act strengthens current law by requiring documentary proof of citizenship to register to vote in Federal elections. Former President Trump and Speaker Johnson endorsed the bill at an April 12 press conference.

The Only Citizens Vote Coalition consists of more than seventy local, state, and national organizations and citizen leaders who believe that only U.S. citizens should be allowed to vote in any American election—local, state, and federal– and that proof of United States citizenship must be required to register to vote. The organizations are pledging to work together to educate our fellow citizens on the importance of citizen-only voting and ensure the enactment and administration of laws and practices at all levels of government to prevent noncitizen registration and voting. More information about the threat of noncitizen voting can be found on the Coalition’s website: https://www.onlycitizensvotecoalition.com
