Ask The Voters

a project of Civ.Works


We all want fair and transparent elections.

Auditing our election process is a good thing, and can help us have more confidence in the results.

The purpose of an election is to record the voters' intent. If we think that results are off what is expected, the most powerful way to search for evidence is by walking precincts. If we ask the voters how they voted, specifically in precincts targeted by analysis, we can quickly verify that our votes have all been counted correctly and address any issues found. This has been done successfully in Florida in 2006 and can be done again.

Candidates: help with data and other advice is available in Discord

Volunteers: we need your help! Walkers are needed in Zapata, Texas; St Lucie County, Florida; and other locations. We can also use Organizers and Tech volunteers.

Voters and Volunteers

If you are a voter, please understand that it can help to ensure the integrity of our elections if you participate in verifying your vote. Asking you directly, bypasses all possible vote manipulation. Please be ready to sign an affidavit and/or anonymously and securely record your vote in a verification system in your precinct.

Volunteers are welcome! Sign up at volunteermatch to help us spread the word - or to Walk Precincts!
