Welcome To Counted As Cast


Counted As Cast is about election systems, so it is about democracy. Fair and accurate elections are mission-critical to government. Risky election systems put our government at risk. Here we look at some of the issues, and suggest some ideas on how to make our elections more efficient and secure.

CountedAsCast.ORG links to an older website, CountedAsCast.COM, that has much useful information about election integrity issues. The table of contents for CountedAsCast.COM is below. Its “Issues” page is good place to start. CountedAsCast.ORG offers More recent posts about current topics, which you can find on the side (or bottom on smaller screens).


Voting Rights Task Force

The VRTF has been active in the SF Bay Area working to ensure that our elections are verified. We have had an impact on the local, state, federal, and even international level.

You can find more information about the VRTF at The VRTF In Action, 2016, and here.

For discussion and election legislation alerts, please join the VRTF discussion group by emailing the Voting Rights Task Force at: voting-rights-subscribe@yahoogroups.com or going to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/voting-rights/join.

Democracy advocates in the SF Bay Area can receive alerts about VRTF meetings at http://www.meetup.com/Voting-Rights-Task-Force-East-Bay/
