We all want free and fair elections.
Election Protection makes sure that every American can make their voices heard even when anti-voter rules try to get in the way. In 2020, Common Cause in Connecticut mobilized Non-partisan Social Media Election Monitors to help stop voter suppression by finding and appropriately responding to voter misinformation and disinformation online.
The right to vote and have our voices heard is fundamental to our democracy.
At a time when far too many eligible voters are discouraged from voting or wrongly turned away from the polls, we need to rededicate ourselves to increasing participation among eligible voters.
But over the past several years, we have seen a disturbing increase in the number and scope of attempts to suppress the votes of tens of thousands of American citizens—sometimes by illegal, intimidating practices.
For that reason in the 2020 General Election Common Cause in Connecticut deployed Nonpartisan Social Distance Roving Poll Monitors who were the eyes on the ground from the safety of their vehicles outside polling places statewide. On the lookout for voter intimidation, long lines, unsafe conditions due to covid-19, lack of signage or other obstacles to voting—these volunteers were a new nonpartisan force in Connecticut elections.
