SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown announced she is leading a coalition of governors from the states of California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Nevada, New Jersey, Minnesota, and Michigan in pledging to work to ensure that voting is safe, accessible and secure.

In a statement Brown said: “The COVID-19 pandemic is fundamentally changing the way Americans live and work. Our nation faces an unprecedented challenge to protect the health and lives of millions. But in the face of such a fight, we cannot let our constitutional right to free and fair elections suffer

The governors agreed to:

  • Carry out the Nov. 3, 2020, general election, as mandated by law.
  • Ensure electoral college electors vote as they are pledged, in line with the Supreme Court decision in Chiafalo v. Washington, on July 6, 2020.
  • Work with their respective state and local-level election officials to ensure that the right to vote is accessible, safe and secure.
  • In coordination with elections officials, communicate with voters about the possibility of delayed results in some states due to increased use of mail-in voting and the status of the count post-election.
  • Ensure that any substantive allegations of voter disenfranchisement or elections fraud are quickly and thoroughly investigated.
