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 a larger 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).
