Our elections are haunted by a web of problems
To name a few:
- registration obstacles
- voter record corruption
- disabled vote-by-mail
- difficult access to polling places
- voter intimidation
- electronic hacking
- mis- and dis- information
- slow tabulation and reporting
How do we evaluate a state’s ability to hold a fair election? Or how it actually performs?
There is no single, generally accepted set of criteria and measurement.
There are, of course, plenty of observations, opinions, and rants.
This leaves all of us with viewpoints that are subject to our information silos, and heat-of-the-moment priorities.
We then attempt to work together without clarity about our assumptions and foundations. We end up at odds with natural allies, and with fragmented, diluted strategies.
ElexDex is the solution
It provides a single number rating for each state – a report card based on standardized criteria.
Based on objective data and the observations of experts, ElexDex creates an “at a glance” shared reality, and thus help us focus conversations about priorities for progress.
