Voting is our most fundamental responsibility as citizens—without it, American democracy wouldn’t exist. The Pew Charitable Trusts’ election work supported innovative research and partnerships to achieve the highest standards of accuracy, cost-effectiveness, convenience, and security in the U.S. system of election administration. Because effective elections systems are essential to our nation’s democracy, we examined pressing election problems, shared successful practices, and undertook projects to help states implement efficient and economical solutions. This project ended in 2018.
