We’re building trust and confidence in the election process.
An historic election calls for a historic commitment to the American idea—that our elections are resilient, safe, and fair because of the election workers, voices, and voters right in our neighborhoods who make it possible. The Election Trust Project is a new initiative from the National Conference on Citizenship designed to empower Americans by deepening trust in this year’s election process, and inspiring them to feel confidence in the election process in their communities—as this election season reaches its conclusion.
The more people know what to expect this year and why—from mail-in voting, to their role, to waiting to learn the result—the more we can all feel secure in our votes, the process, and the outcome. In the coming weeks, Election Trust Project is offering knowledge and guidance for our cities and towns, with a declaration and celebration to recognize the incredible efforts of our election workers who have made this historic election possible—and ac the power of our voters who have taken their voices and made them heard at the ballot box in 2020, whether by mail or in person.
Election Hero Day: November 2nd, 2020
On Monday, November 2nd, the Election Trust Project and NCoC are powering the first-ever Election Hero Day (electionheroday.org) in recognition of those working hard to make voting safe and easy this year. Tens of thousands of Americans have raised their hands to become poll workers this year, joining hundreds of thousands of clerks, officials, election directors, and those keeping us safe and working tirelessly to lead a fair, efficient, and transparent voting process. Supported by a coalition of public officials, private sector organizations, and leading voices, November 2nd is a day to recognize the work of those who have strengthened and led our election systems at the local level—supporting the millions who have already voted and will vote. NCoC invites partners to formally join the effort at ElectionHeroDay.org to acknowledge Election Hero Day within their organizations.
