During the 2016 and 2018 elections, we tested a radical idea: Could volunteer organizations and even individuals be effective polling place auditors and evidence gatherers, if given the right tools? And would they?
Not only were the answers to these questions a resounding yes, we firmly believe that with the right tools, this idea could be scaled to a national level.
To hold election systems accountable by empowering people to gather direct evidence and drive effective legal challenges.
The goal of Actual Vote is to develop tools and processes for people to make digital recordings of publicly posted polling place results and later us them to verify official results. If discrepancies are found, the digital recordings can be used to take appropriate legal action.
The Actual Vote mobile app is now available in the Apple App Store and was used in Broward County, Florida in the March 2020 Primary. An Android version is being developed. Sign-up for our newsletter or follow us for the latest updates!
