Former national security and defense officials from both Democratic and Republican administrations wrote an open letter to all present United States Senators who have served in the military, believing that they are particularly prepared to handle the subject of electoral reform. Their letter underlines their serious concern about threats to democracy, both domestic and foreign, and urges them to prioritize the security of the election process. General George Casey, USA (ret.), 36th Chief of Staff of the Army, and General Anthony Zinni, USMC (ret.), former Commander, US Central Command Chair, Count Every Hero are among those who signed the letter.
