CAP Update Call: Election Security in 50 States

Defending America’s Elections


Center for American Progress
6:00 - 6:30 PM EST

In 2016, Russia sought to breach the U.S. elections, including attempting to hack into many states’ election systems. Despite bipartisan efforts in Congress to bolster election security and provide needed funding, legislation remains blocked.

The Center for American Progress has released a report on election security preparedness in all 50 states, assigning grades to each state. CAP’s research and report card are designed to identify and provide information on strengths and shortcomings in each state’s election security preparedness. A better understanding of how each state can improve its election security preparedness can help build urgency for appropriate solutions and arm stakeholders with information to demand increased security measures.

Please join CAP for a discussion about best practices and the vulnerabilities in election infrastructure that threaten to undermine America’s free and fair elections—the cornerstone of our self-government.

CAP experts joining the call include:

Neera Tanden
President and CEO

Liz Kennedy
Senior Director, Democracy and Government Reform

Danielle Root
Voting Rights Manager

Michael Sozan
Senior Fellow, Democracy and Government Reform

Call-in information will be provided upon RSVP. Please contact Jon Roux at [email protected] for further questions or inquiries.
