OUR RESEARCH

Is there an election denier with power over your local election process? We've done the research. 

Democracy Health Grade

Protect Our Election's research team has spent months drilling down to the local level in search of red flags that may impact your experience voting in seven key states this year. We looked for election administrators or local officials with a role in certification who have expressed support for election denial conspiracy theories, we noted recent turnover and/or upheaval in administrative roles and processes, and we evaluated where voter suppression and/or intimidation may occur. 

Our findings are below. All told, we identified 98 counties across our seven states that met the criteria for a red flag. These are locations where we may see refusal to certify electoral results at the local level, or other post-election partisan efforts to game the system. 

It is likely that we missed some jurisdictions. If you have information you would like to share with us as we build our database for future election years, please do so via the form below.
