House lawmakers warned on Wednesday that misinformation about election results may threaten the staffing levels of election workers who can commit to doing the work fairly in 2024.

Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) cited recent polls that found 20 percent of election workers said they planned to leave their jobs ahead of the 2024 election, the next time the country will vote to elect a president.

She cited violent threats to such workers who were counting votes in 2020, some of whom became targets by former President Trump, who falsely claimed they had committed varying degrees of fraud leading to his defeat in several key states.

“Election officials and workers have seen an unprecedented spike in threats and violence as the former president and his allies have pushed lies about mail in ballots, voting machines, and the results of the 2020 presidential election,” Scanlon said during a House Administration Committee hearing on disinformation.
