BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. SCANLON. Madam Speaker, our elections are foundational to our democracy, the pulse of our Nation, and the most sacred form of protest that we as Americans have at our disposal.

We, the people, have a right to vote without obstruction, without fear, without intimidation, and with the assurance that every vote will be counted.

Madam Speaker, I want to take a minute to assure the American people who are receiving mail-in ballots for the first time, making a plan to vote on election day, looking for locations where early voting is taking place, signing up to volunteer, or feeling a sense of uncertainty as we participate in one of the most important elections of our lifetime: your vote is safe, your vote is secure, and your vote matters.

And, Madam Speaker, to the young people who will be casting their votes for the first time: you are the future of this country, and we need you to participate in our government now more than ever.

To those who have lost faith in our government: we, the people, are the gatekeepers of our democracy, and our participation has never been more important.

There is far too much on the line for us to take voting for granted.
