Hello, my name is____________. I’m calling from STATE in ZIP CODE. We need voter integrity, but I don’t want the federal government to control my state elections. I also want the vote to be protected from fraud. I am your constituent and am urging you to vote NO when the Senate holds a vote on S. 1. Thank you.
