8. Verified Voting's Election Transparency Project

Verified Voting's Election Transparency Project

Do you wonder whether your vote counts? Are you losing faith in our electoral process? Do you think our elections are as accurate as they should be? Are you concerned that the results might be vulnerable to fraud or machine failure?

There is something you can do NOW, even before the election starts. Verified Voting's Election Transparency Project is enlisting members

of the public (and especially organized groups) to help find out what really goes on in our elections. Our aim is to document everything we can, so that we actually know what happened after election day.
There are enough close races in this election that what we witness could affect the outcome of a race. The presence of observers will keep election officials on their toes, and there will be fewer problems as a result.

Most importantly, the findings from this project will keep election reform advocates busy for several years proposing improved election procedures and new legislation, so that future elections are much more accurate and transparent than current ones.
