Thousands of local election officials in 3,144 counties across the U.S. will be making decisions over the next 3 - 10 months impacting the voting rights of millions of Americans.
We can't afford to wait until Election Day to find out about these decisions, such as thousands of eligible voters being removed from voter registration lists, hundreds of polling places being closed or changed at the last minute, reductions to early voting opportunities, and other decisions designed to suppress our voting rights.
Our mission is to put a trained volunteer lawyer in EVERY county in the United States to monitor, report on, and take action to address voter suppression BEFORE THE DAMAGE IS DONE ON ELECTION DAY (learn more about Election Watch)
We have thousands of volunteer lawyers ready to donate tens of millions of dollars' worth of their time to this effort, a training program developed, a pilot program launched, partnerships in place with the Lawyers' Committee and Voting Rights Institute, and a technical team prepared to build out the full national database we need to scale quickly.
The only obstacle remaining in our path is funding. With just a few key staff members and the right technology, we can ramp up Election Watch in time to make a real difference for the 2018 midterms.
Please help us take a stand for every American who's counting on the 2018 elections being free, fair, and representative of the nation's true will.
