Trustworthy Elections Campaign
We build trust in the integrity of our elections.
Our vision in this national campaign is an America in which growing majorities in both parties believe that U.S. elections are fair, reliable, and worthy of the public’s trust.
To realize this vision, Common Ground Workshops across the country bring together conservatives concerned with voter fraud and election security and progressives concerned with voter suppression and the peaceful transfer of power to look for common-ground ideas for establishing trustworthy elections.
From each local workshop, two or more participants (with the requirement of equal numbers red and blue) will be eligible to join a national task force on trustworthy elections.
Organize a Workshop
The primary tool for the Trustworthy Elections Campaign will be Common Ground Workshops organized across the country in which citizens meet on equal terms in mixed groups (concerned with fraud / concerned with suppression) to clarify differences and seek common ground. The stories and recommendations emerging from this grassroots American conversation will inform and structure the next phase of the initiative. Please consider organizing a workshop in your area.
For further assistance with organizing an event, please reach out to Bill Carberry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the National Task Force
This committee will meet monthly via Zoom to build relationships and explore issues. In 2023 we will release a jointly-authored (half red / half blue) Report to the Nation on common-ground ideas for ensuring bipartisan trust in U.S. elections. The committee will disseminate this message of hope and these practical ideas to legislators, the media, leaders of civil society, and opinion leaders across the country.
Our nation needs us and we invite you to join this effort.
