The Texas Public Policy Foundation announced today that Joshua J. Findlay has been named as the Director of its expanded Election Protection Project. Findlay is joining the Texas Public Policy Foundation from the Republican National Committee, where he served as its first-ever National Director of Election Integrity. In this new role at TPPF, Findlay will lead a team focused on promoting election policies that promote free, fair, and safe elections, and ensuring that all voters have equal protection under the law.

Greg Sindelar, TPPF President and CEO, said, “We are delighted with Josh coming onboard to lead our efforts in the vital area of election integrity.” He went on to note, “When the election code is ignored or discarded anywhere in America, our republic suffers through the erosion of our representative form of government. We cannot accept flawed elections.”

Findlay’s first official work with TPPF will be participating in an American Legislative Exchange Council roundtable on election integrity in Orlando, Florida on July 25.

Findlay brings years of successful experience in election integrity to TPPF. During the 2022 Election Cycle, he executed an unprecedented Election Integrity effort across 17 battleground states. Dedicated to improving citizen participation in the election process, his team coordinated placement of over 80,000 new volunteers in official election roles, and his work was covered in the Washington Post, New York Times, The Hill and Politico. Moreover, Findlay is a nationally recognized expert in election integrity, testifying before Congress most recently as an expert for the U.S. House Committee on Administration’s 2022 Midterms Look Back Series: Election Observer Access.

“I deeply appreciate the Texas Public Policy Foundation for this opportunity to accelerate the fight for excellent election policy,” Findlay said. “Over the last few election cycles, I have seen first-hand the way that ambiguous laws, last-minute changes, and poor election administration erode trust in our election process and results. Voters across the country deserve to know that their right to legally cast a ballot will be protected and that it will be counted properly.”

Prior to his placement at TPPF, Findlay served as legal counsel to presidential campaigns, in senior roles on statewide political campaigns, and as Chief Counsel for a Member of Congress. He’s had leadership roles in every major Election Day legal war room in America for the last several years including those of President Donald Trump in 2020, Governor Glenn Youngkin in 2021, and the RNC’s first-ever national war room in 2022.
