PHILADELPHIA (January 6, 2023) — “Two years after the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Verified Voting remains committed to supporting election officials in making sure that every vote is counted as cast and that voters have justified confidence in our elections.
“The attempts to overturn the 2020 election proved the importance of resilient, secure election systems. As we head into the 2024 election cycle, election best practices, such as nonpartisan post-election audits that demonstrate that the winner won and the loser lost, are more important than ever and must be adopted more widely. Progress is being made: more states are implementing post-election audits, and the recently passed Electoral Count Reform Act of 2022 will help reduce the unacceptable risks of preventable presidential election crises. Verified Voting is committed to truth, accuracy and protecting our elections from attacks and disinformation.”
