About Scrutineers


Scrutineers is a non-partisan organization centering our work on election protection. It is our mission to mobilize our members around activities that help make local, state, and national elections more transparent, accurate, and accessible for all voters.


While you may be familiar with work that protects citizens’ right to vote, which is incredibly important, you may not know that there is an entire sector of electoral work that is focused on the votes themselves. It is just as important to do our part in making sure votes are counted correctly, recorded without corruption, and reported accurately. These processes are crucial to ensuring that elections reflect the true desires of voters. Scrutineers is a non-partisan community of Democrats, Republicans, small party, and unaffiliated voters seeking to do just that.

About Scrutineers

Location:

849 Almar Ave #C-225, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, US

Mission Statement

To train and mobilize a U.S. election Fairness Force to ensure all voters can vote and that our votes are counted accurately.

Description

Scrutineers works at the intersection of the voting rights movement and the election transparency movement. We work to make sure everyone qualified to vote can vote, and that all the votes are counted accurately.

We’re the only national organization that trains activists to monitor elections to help ensure fair and accurate counting of votes. Our trainings happen online and can be accessed from anywhere.

Whatever your cause, it’s a lost cause without trustworthy elections.

You’re in the right place if any of these describes you:

  1. Regardless of what candidates you support, you believe in fair elections (We’re nonpartisan)
  2. You’re concerned about the attacks on the freedom to vote
  3. You’re just beginning to learn about elections and want to get involved in making them better
  4. You’re an expert in some aspect of elections and want to share your knowledge
  5. You’re considering being a poll worker
  6. You want to help protect the elections but are worried about COVID and other risks of doing in-person work
  7. You’re already volunteering to work for a candidate, phonebanking/postcarding, etc.
  8. You care about the election but don’t have voting rights (due to age, immigration status, or prior convictions)
  9. You understand that action is needed because the election is not going to protect itself, but you don’t know what to do
