A fair and free election process is a hallmark of American democracy, and Federal, state and local government officials are working together to secure America’s election infrastructure from new and evolving threats.

This election infrastructure ranges from voter registration databases and voting systems to IT systems such as the counting, auditing, and displaying of election results, and post-election reporting to certify and validate results.


Join us to explore the national response to digital threats to America’s election process.
