Access Democracy


our mission

Access Democracy fixes local election administration problems to ensure all eligible Americans can vote. Issues like long lines, broken voting machines, and poorly maintained voter rolls block access to the ballot for millions of Americans -- and they're solvable.

Access Democracy uses data to pinpoint a county or city's specific voting problems, and identifies solutions that fit that community's needs and its budget. We work with local officials who want to improve how they're running elections -- and shine a spotlight on those who don't.


How elections are run blocks millions from a vote:
