How to Protect the Vote - Election Software Project progress report
Wednesday Oct. 14 at 7 pm CST
You already know this is the most important election in our history. Millions of Americans have already voted and millions more are planning
how they’re going to vote during the next four weeks.
Time is short to protect your vote in the upcoming November election. Every day, every week remaining is critical to laying the groundwork in key battleground states to ensure that our votes are counted as cast.
You are critical to the success of our Election Software Project.
Want to learn more?
Please join us for our 1 hour Election Software Project Review on Wednesday, October 14th at 7 pm CST.
You’ll learn the current status of our election protection efforts in seven Battleground States – Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
You’ll learn what progress the teams have made gathering documents and information from the Boards of Election necessary to proceed on
Wednesday November 4 in the event a statewide vote count appears irregular or questionable. In just the past week, the Project has continued to make significant progress toward meeting its goals and preparing for post-election action if required. The progress included uncovering a major irregularity in one of the largest counties in the largest Battleground State - Florida. We'll discuss it on Wednesday.
You'll learn the answer to a question at the end of Thursday's event from an attendee asking about what must be established to win a post-election contest of a certified statewide Presidential result.
During the meeting, you’ll meet activists, technologists and lawyers from the Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism (CICJ) who are assembling robust election protection teams capable of taking immediate action if significant irregularities are detected in any of the battleground states.
The Election Software Project could quite literally make certain that the votes will be counted as cast and that those votes will determine
the final certified vote total in each of the seven Battleground States. As was shown in 2016, election results can turn on the smallest of margins!
The three most important things you can do to fuel this strategy:
1) Donate. Taking a page from Senator Sanders, every $27 helps; contributions of larger amounts are also encouraged.
2) Co-host Wednesday’s event. Did you attend our first meeting? Your social capital is extremely valuable. Invite your friends to hear this
presentation. If willing to co-host, we can send you the invitation language you can use to send to your family, friends, acquaintances, and
others interested in actualizing Ben Franklin’s advice that we have a republic if we can keep it.
3) Volunteer your time. We can quickly train qualified volunteers to help our teams contacting Boards of Elections to obtain the information
we need to protect the election. If you are willing to volunteer, please let us know in chat at the Wednesday event or contact the Project teams at [email protected] (mailto:[email protected])
On Wednesday's event you'll be able to ask questions of the experts, volunteer, and if you like make a donation to the CICJ's Election
Software Project. The Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism is a long-established and successful 501(c)(3) organization which has been active in the election protection space for many years. All donations to the CICJ are tax-deductible.
