If you've ever been interested in repairing our broken elections... now is a great time to get involved. If you're already involved - let's increase our effectiveness and momentum! How do we get inspired and connected? Maybe you have some ideas. Could you leave them in the comments? Here are some of my ideas.
Step 1) If you haven't done so yet, make cleaning up our broken elections your number 1 political priority. Whatever issues you care about, improving our elections will improve their chance for success.
Step 2) Watch the film I've made outlining many of the issues that need to be repaired. Even if you know a lot about elections - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the depth of information on electronic equipment, hand counts, third party candidates, and public funding of elections. Bev Harris said, "I was blown away." And it's fun.
Step 3) Leave your email here so that we can stay in touch.
In the coming days, I'll be be sending out an email with some of the ideas people have generated, and some of mine. I also am planning to start a national conference call to focus on coordinating election integrity groups and better implementing their ideas. In my opinion the most important priority is that we have confidence that the vote counts are accurate, and the best way to do that is with #HandCountedPaperBallots - the system used in most democracies around the world. There are a lot of amazing people working in the election integrity movement and if we can get coordinated, this can a time of deep reform.
