The Elections Group is helping to mature and accelerate partnerships between election officials and law enforcement for the purpose of keeping election workers and voters safe.
In partnership with the Brennan Center for Justice, Protect Democracy and the R Street Institute, The Elections Group is supporting the Committee for Safe and Secure Elections (CSSE).
The Committee for Safe and Secure Elections features cross-partisan experts in election administration and law enforcement who aim to support policies and practices that protect election workers and voters from violence, threats, and intimidation. The Committee also works to build relationships and trust between election officials and law enforcement to better equip both to prevent and respond to threats and violence against voters and election workers.
