Despite facing an unprecedented confluence of challenges, America's election officials pulled off the most secure election in our nation's history. They made the most of inadequate funding, they installed safety measures to guard against COVID-19, they turned a potential shortage of poll workers into a surplus, they strengthened our cyber defenses, they fought disinformation, and they withstood a manipulative domestic political assault that called their competence and patriotism into question.
They protected our election.
Our election officials and poll workers are American heroes. Hundreds of thousands of your fellow citizens stepped up across 50 states and 2,974 counties and accomplished something that deserves our collective praise.
We Are Democracy is a nation-wide effort to thank these public servants for their tireless work, and we would love your help. Our goal is to deliver tokens of appreciation to at least 50,000 election officials and local poll volunteers.
We need you to lead the effort in your community. Sign up to be a part of the effort, and check out our toolkit including postcard templates, scripts for letters and video messages, social media sample language, opportunities to organize events in your community, and ideas for homemade art projects and recipes!
