Election Security and What You Can Do About It

As the United States moves through the 2020 election cycle, the nation is on tenterhooks about whether or not our elections will be manipulated. While much attention has been paid to foreign interference in the 2016 election, far fewer people are aware of the dangers from “home-grown” threats, some built into our very voting systems. Emily has been a leader in the election security movement dating to 2004, when she coordinated the most in-depth investigation into irregularities in the Presidential election in Ohio. With stories, cutting-edge information, and actionable suggestions, Emily helps her audiences understand how both voters and those without voting rights can play a role in securing our elections.
