At the invitation of the leadership of The American Law Institute, a group whose members span a range of legal and political views came together to consider possible Electoral Count Act (ECA) reforms. Despite holding diverse legal, political, and ideological commitments, the group is united by the belief that Congress should reform the ECA before the 2024 presidential election. The group has agreed on several general principles that should guide ECA reform, as well as specific proposals as to what ECA reform should seek to accomplish.

In an upcoming episode of ALI’s Reasonably Speaking podcast, ALI President David F. Levi will be speaking with the group’s co-chairs Bob Bauer and Jack Goldsmith to further discuss their work. ALI Director Richard L. Revesz will also be devoting his April quarterly newsletter in The ALI Reporter to discussing the group’s important work.
