SMART Elections is a non-partisan project dedicated to elevating the issue of election reform to an urgent national priority.
There are currently seven main sectors in the election reform movement:
These groups are powerful individually – but tend to work separately from each other, and sometimes in opposition to each other. Our nation’s elections are in disrepair. A broad-based coalition of these sectors working cooperatively across the political spectrum can generate the attention and resources necessary to repair our dysfunctional electoral process. SMART elections is dedicated to that cooperative effort.
We are building bridges and lasting partnerships that can produce significant improvements in U.S, elections.
We focus especially on election security because that is our area of expertise, and we know that if security is not addressed - and votes are not counted accurately - then all other reforms are at risk.
SMART stands for
*(for those who are able)
