Mission Statement

SMART Elections is an innovative, non-partisan project who serves U.S. voters, advocates, election officials and the general public. We are transforming U.S. elections so they are secure, fair, accessible, well-administered and publicly verifiable. We want the public to have full confidence in election results.


SMART Elections is identifying critical problems and motivating the public and officials to address them with secure, efficient systems. We want to ensure that U.S. elections are even-handed, well-run, and publicly verifiable. Our government will be more effective when it is selected in a fair, accurate, transparent, and inclusive process.

U.S. elections are experiencing a crisis of security, management, and confidence.

OUR SOLUTION : We work with respected stakeholders and academics to identify problems with our elections. Then we use innovative, fun forums to advocate for recommended reforms. We work locally to educate, connect, and empower communities to improve their elections. We have educated thousands of advocates who watch our forums, attend our documentary screenings, and interact with our website. Elected officials have taken note of our work and asked to collaborate with us.
