Democracy prevailed in 2020.
Despite facing an unprecedented confluence of challenges, America's election officials pulled off the most secure election in our nation's history. They made the most of inadequate funding, they installed safety measures to guard against COVID-19, they turned a potential shortage of poll workers into a surplus, they strengthened our cyber defenses, they fought disinformation, and they withstood a manipulative domestic political assault that called their competence and patriotism into question.
They protected our election.
But now, despite their unimpeachable dedication and widespread success during the last election cycle, local election officials across the country are under attack. They have been on the receiving end of disgusting personal threats, defamatory and baseless claims of bias, and, increasingly, challenges from unqualified amateurs outside the system.
Protect Our Election is organizing a nationwide research project to compile a hyperlocal database of the vulnerabilities in our election administration: we're working to identify where local officials need funding and resources, where anti-democratic forces are taking hold, and where disinformation has run rampant through our communities.
This is a perfect way for you to contribute to a unique body of research and help shine a light on the realities of our decentralized electoral process. Contact us today to find out how you can help.
