Website Health Check

USDR’s team of volunteers can help you evaluate the security, performance, and usability of your election site to ensure that it is ready to support voters throughout the election season. We’ll confirm that your site is in good shape or identify any remaining opportunities for improvement. We’ll work with you quickly (think days, not weeks) to help you fine-tune, prioritize, and troubleshoot so you can look forward to the election with confidence.

Verify you’re ready to go

USDR’s technical team will run best practice checks to assess the security and performance of your election website, so it’s ready to meet any surge in demand. We’ll provide findings in a format that’s actionable and easy to understand — and our engineers can partner with you to resolve urgent issues quickly.
