Strengthening Democracy for All Voters

Our Mission

Verified Voting’s mission is to strengthen democracy for all voters by promoting the responsible use of technology in elections.

We are a non-partisan organization focused exclusively on the critical role technology plays in election administration. Our staff, Board, and Board of Advisors consist of nationally-recognized subject matter experts on the issue of election integrity and the responsible use of technology. Since our founding in 2004 by computer scientists, we have acted on the belief that the integrity and strength of our democracy rely on citizens’ trust that each vote is counted as cast. In the ever-shifting world of election security, where new threats or challenges can emerge at any time, we are working to guide elections toward greater accuracy, security, and verifiability.

Our Work

Examples of our work include:
  • Bringing together policymakers and officials who are designing and implementing voting-related legislation and regulations with technology experts who comprehend the risks associated with the emerging digital landscape, particularly the online and electronic elements in voting.
  • Connecting advocates, researchers, the media, and the public to provide a greater understanding of these complex issues.
  • Providing guidance to election officials around the country, helping them implement best practices for election security that acknowledge local needs.
  • Developing assets including the most comprehensive publicly-accessible database of voting systems used around the country (The Verifier), background information on election equipment, and archives of news and publications on election technology.

Our Values

Democracy

In a democracy, the citizens must have the capacity to hold their government accountable, which requires an electoral system that is inclusive and secure for all. Election technology must enable democratic principles.

Effectiveness

We tailor our strategies according to research, data and analysis, and we share our analysis publicly. We strive to disseminate our work in a timely manner.

Collaboration

We collaborate within our team and with other organizations to build trusting and respectful relationships. Together, we work more effectively to support and protect democracy.

Trustworthiness

We base our work on evidence, technical rigor, and clarity about what is not yet known. Our credibility depends on our ability to find realistic solutions to the problems facing our democracy.

Respect

We value multiple perspectives and viewpoints from diverse constituencies because we recognize that diversity informs more effective solutions. We value the wide ranging perspectives that our colleagues and collaborators bring to the table, and we create an environment for all voices to be heard.
