Website Design and Content
We plan to redesign the website to focus on problems and solutions. If you can provide content, technical assistance or steady updates, please consider making your mark here. One area we are looking for is focused content, e.g. a page for educators and development of education materials.

If you are a member, and especially if you are a regular contributor, to DailyKos, Democratic Underground, Wikipedia or other discussion and reference forums, we need you to fight systemic disinformation.

If you are in academia -- faculty or student -- we have great data for many articles with ground-breaking potential.
Organize an Event
The election integrity movement has many great speakers. We have great stories to tell that your community hasn't heard on TV or radio. Organize an event to raise awareness of the issue. We've had many sucessful events across the continent, even in very red states.
EI ought to maintain regular communications with a variety of constituent groups: the media, donors, election officials, lawmakers... but we do not. Please let us know if you can help.

Think you might be able to design a better election system than ES&S, Diebold or Sequoia? We think we can too. But we need a full-fledged business plan, not just a design, with a commitment to all aspects of the endeavor from financing to marketing and everything in between.
Tell Us How You Can Help
If we could actually harness the good intentions of decent people throughout the country and across the globe, we could have the best democracy the world has ever known. Unfortunately, Americans are increasingly unaccustomed to acting in a voluntary context. Democracy demands a willingness and ability to think for yourself, take initiative, and commit to working with others on behalf of the common good; to make an individual contribution in a group effort without being told explicitly what to do. So please, think about what you can offer, and share these skills and resources.
