Photograph poll tapes at the polling place on election night and check the vote totals against the official vote totals to catch erroneous election results. If we want fair and accurate elections, we need to show up. Not just to vote, but to protect the right to vote and the right to have our votes counted accurately.
What is #CountTheVote?
#CountTheVote is a project to monitor, protect & verify election results. We use crowdsourcing and new technologies to help make sure that every vote gets counted accurately. The work is done by volunteers – like you!
The first stage of our current project is to compare images of poll tapes taken on Election Night
with the reported results to check for accuracy. What is a poll tape?
