Every election is challenging but the 2020 election has unimaginably high stakes and the potential for catastrophic failure. We must be prepared.
The forum will be broadcast
This event is the seventh forum in a non-partisan coalition-building series to inform, empower, train and connect advocates on #ElectionProtection.
Topic of this event:
Audit the Vote
This is one of the most important topics we will cover. Election security experts say that the best way to make sure that an election has the correct results is for voters who are able to use hand-marked paper ballots and voters with disabilities to use stand alone ballot-marking devices. All of those results must be audited to confirm that they are correct.
The event will be broadcast live on YouTube here.
We have a terrific lineup!
Stephanie Singer of Verified Voting discusses risk-limiting audits. Confused about them? She is one of the most well-informed experts and best communicators on this topic. Know all about them? Ask her something you've always wondered.
Virginia Martin, a former Election Commissioner, is a nationally recognized expert on hand-count audits. She conducted full hand-count audits for 10 years in Columbia County New York. Perhaps the most informed person in the country about how they work and how to make them easy, affordable and fast.
Ray Lutz will demonstrate Audit Engine, something you won't want to miss! A new tool that can help assess the accuracy of results.

LA County Voters Action Coalition
It is critically important that the public gets involved in election protection at a much greater scale than before. To protect the election, we must understand the ways in which it is at risk.
If enough voters receive this type of training, we will meet each challenging turn of the election with studied actions that produce evidence and calm. If not, voters will stand by in dismay as events ricochet around them, potentially descending into chaos.
This is not the type of training you can get at the last minute.
Join the hundreds of people who are taking this training.

Dominion vs. The Experts
Part 1 of a 3-Part Investigative Series
WATCH OUR INVESTIGATIVE SERIES ON THE PROBLEMS WITH HYBRID VOTING MACHINES
A new type of hybrid voting machine — with a security flaw so serious that election security experts say there is no way to mitigate the problem without changing the design of the machine — is being rapidly sold across the country; six swing states have already purchased these machines.
In Part 1 (above) Andrew Appel, a Computer Science Professor at Princeton, explains that due to a design flaw hybrid voting systems are able to print fake votes onto paper ballots - allowing them, if hacked, to steal elections without detection. Professor Appel disagrees with many of the claims made by the voting machine vendors about the security, ease of use, and cost of the machines.
In Part 2 (below) Westchester County NY considers purchasing a hybrid voting system, causing concern among the residents, opposition from disability and security advocates, and raising questions about who is benefiting from the sale.
