The NEDC is leading the fight to replace insecure voting systems with verified elections for all Americans.

Since 2013, National Election Defense Coalition (NEDC) has been building the only bipartisan network of influential cybersecurity experts, voting rights advocates, libertarians and national security conservatives, who agree to speak with one powerful voice in defense of election security.

Mobilization efforts by NEDC and allies have laid the foundation for meaningful election policy reform. We believe our coalition can succeed where politicians and reformers who have traditionally worked on this issue have been stymied.

Our efforts culminated in the Secure Elections Act (S.2953), introduced in December of 2017 by a bipartisan group of six Senators; James Lankford (R-OK), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Martin Heinrich (D-NM). The NEDC has also supported the development of a similar bipartisan measure in the US House, the PAPER Act (H.R. 3751).

Thanks in large part to our coalition’s work with both Houses, in 2018 Congress appropriated $380 million dollars in emergency funding to all fifty states for upgrading and securing election systems. Though this amount is short of the funding necessary to secure all US elections, it was a validation of our bipartisan approach and an important initial victory in the campaign to secure the infrastructure of our democracy.
