Elections and Voting

COVID-19 is forcing rapid change in elections operations this year. We're partnering with elections offices and NGOs to provide new tools and adapt existing ones, streamline operations, and navigate these changes. Knowing that time is of the essence, we can work with you to setup simple tools in a matter of days, using familiar, off-the-shelf software whenever we can, with whatever training or support you need.

Our experienced, pro-bono volunteers can help rapidly:

Inform the Public

  • Bring voters an updated elections website. Counties around the country have used our Elections 2020 website template to launch updated websites within days. We’re also happy to share best practices around design and functionality for your current site.
  • Run a website health check. We can help you learn if your website is prepared for unprecedented web traffic this year by running health and stress tests – then addressing the biggest needs.
  • Set up communication channels. We’ll help you set up the tools you need to share information with your voters across social, email, text, and web.

Optimize Internal Operations

  • Bring poll worker application and management online. We’ll help you set up online tools that make it easy for voters to apply and for your office to manage your poll workers. 
  • Track and respond to polling location wait times. We’ll help you monitor wait times at the polls – helping you respond where needed and improving the voting experience. 
  • Set up voter support and email response tools. We’ll help you set up internal systems to track voter emails and issues – helping your office answer questions and concerns quickly.

Scale and Optimize Vote-By-Mail
