Matt Dolan Statement on Joe Biden’s Call to Federalize Elections

Chagrin Falls, OH – Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Dolan released the following statement after President Joe Biden’s speech promoting the For the People Act (H.R. 1) in Georgia.

“Ohio’s audit results from 2020 and 2021 send a clear message that Washington should keep their hands off our elections. Hyperpartisan liberals in Congress shouldn’t lecture Ohio, or any other state, on preserving the integrity of our ballots. Since the start of the Republic, the Founders wisely established that the states would be in charge of elections and electors. This was purposely done to avoid the restriction of liberty and consolidation of entrenched power by the federal government. I’m proud of the work we have been able to accomplish in Ohio so that it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat. As Ohio’s next Senator, I will pledge to protect states’ rights and ensure that our most sacred text, the Constitution, is never a matter of political convenience.”

recent 2021 election audit conducted by the Ohio Secretary of State found an accuracy rate of 99.9%. In January of 2021, the Ohio Secretary of State announced that an audit of the 2020 election had an accuracy rate of 99.98%.
