Hijacking Election Integrity?
Ever since our founding, TTV has witnessed it shortly before each major election. The larger issue of voting migrates from policy-wonk sections of New York and D.C. media outlets to top-fold, front-page headlines everywhere. But this year, it's different. Claims of "rigged elections" are matching up pound-for-pound against the seasonal freak-outs over "voter suppression and intimidation". This week we even have presidential debate footage to show for it.
But…is the heightened rhetoric on both sides good for the election integrity movement? The finer details are most certainly getting lost. However, there are signs that good people are beginning to open their eyes to the incredible faults and weaknesses in our voting systems that breed fraud and irregularities.
True the Vote has three action items for you – all of them specifically designed to help you make a positive difference in the months ahead.

Check out our ‘living’ Election Crimes Database
If you’ve been poking around the TTV website lately, you may have noticed a new feature at the top: the Election Crimes Database. This valuable tool has been specially created to serve as a “living” resource for engaged voters to research election crimes in their various forms -- either close to home or across the nation. Start taking a look around. Do us a favor and let us know if you see an incident that should be added to this ever-expanding database!
Did you know? PEW Research highlighted a study that detailed the total amount it would cost to collect ALL voter files in the country. True the Vote’s national voter roll research databank costs $126,482 -- just for the raw data!
