Demand An Audit Of The 2016 Presidential Election
The FBI determined some months ago that hacking, originating from Russia, was having an influence on our electoral process. These hackers interfered with our presidential election through attempted and successful penetration of email and voter registration databases, among other systems. This created fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the safety of our electoral processes.
Computers tabulated the vast majority of the 129 million votes cast in the presidential election, and polls were wildly off. Did hackers manipulate the results by compromising voting equipment? Did other problems, glitches, or errors affect the outcome?
There's a simple, relatively inexpensive way to find out: audit the electronic results against the paper ballots used by about 75% of U.S. voters.
American democracy depends on public trust of our electoral process, and public trust requires a trustworthy process.
Please sign to demand that election officials double-check the electronic results by conducting a "risk-limiting" audit of the presidential election in every state that uses paper ballots.
Verified Voting Foundation is a non-partisan non-profit organization that advocates for public policy that promotes accuracy, transparency and verifiability of elections. We believe the integrity and strength of our democracy relies on citizen’s trust that each vote be counted as cast. Our primary concern lies in ensuring that the means for verifying election outcomes are in place and used for that purpose. We also focus on the reliability and security of voting systems. We connect those who are making and implementing policy that shapes how we vote to those who understand the particular risks associated with the emerging digital landscape, particularly on-line and electronic voting.

- Election Officials
The people of your state deserve a secure election system with rigorously tested outcomes. The electoral season has been marked by hacking which the FBI attributes to Russia. Registration databases have been compromised in some states, as have email systems. We cannot be sure at this point that the results of your state's election have not been affected. Let's remove all doubt and do a risk limiting audit to verify the election results.
