ELECTION DEFENSE IS NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE


Due to “Trojan horse” electronic voting machines running private, insecure software, American voters have been left in the dark.

The Bipartisan Alliance to Secure Elections is the only national movement uniting across party lines to defend American elections and bring our ballots back into the light.

Adviser to the 2020 campaign of Donald Trump.

BASE SUPPORTS LEGISLATION THAT BRINGS OUR BALLOTS BACK TO THE LIGHT

 
 

We are citizens, organizations,  lawmakers, computer scientists and elections officials putting country before party to achieve achieve common sense, urgently needed election reforms. 

We support state’s rights and promote their immediate implementation of electoral best practices, including voter verified, paper based voting systems that are secured through robust public audits.

States must:

  • End the use of paperless Touchscreen voting machines and reestablish voter-verified paper ballots as the official record of voter intent.

  • Safeguard against internet-related security vulnerabilities and assure the ability to detect attacks.

  • Require robust post-election hand-count audits before certification of final election results.
