Introducing Democracy SoS Project, from FairVote - SendMeRSS

FairVote now has a watchdog group for Secretary of States (SoS) for all of the states, called "Democracy SoS Project". A Secretary of State is an state executive office responsible for the state's electoral system, regulating political parties, candidates, county voting administrators and voters.

FairVote is launching the Democracy SoS Project. With a number of coalition partners, FairVote will survey Secretary of State (SoS) candidates and act as a watchdog for incumbents. Putting more sunshine on the influential office of SoS will promote transparency in election administration and encourage office-seekers to share their views on issues ranging from photo identification requirements to maintaining complete and accurate voter rolls.
Through research, education and outreach to these officials and their actions, we will spotlight ways to improve elections in the short-term and over the long-term in every state. For more information, visit http://www.fairvote.org/sos or contact Right to Vote Director Adam Fogel (afogel@fairvote.org).
