20 Ways to Protect the 2020 Presidential Election
New report highlights measures that can be implemented before November

The Alliance for Securing Democracy (ASD) at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) today released 20 for 20: 20 Ways to Protect the 2020 Presidential Election.

In this report, ASD’s Elections Integrity Fellow David Levine and BPC’s Elections Project Director Matthew Weil identify 20 ways states could further protect the 2020 presidential election with additional funding.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, some states have begun using previously appropriated election security funds to cover unanticipated costs. While necessary, this redirection of funds creates a dilemma: states are using money originally intended to address key issues like election infrastructure and foreign interference to cover the new costs, leaving American democracy vulnerable to increasingly sophisticated foreign adversaries.

The 20 for 20 recommendations incorporate successful state-run programs, local officials’ input, and voter feedback to give federal lawmakers a better understanding of what could be done with additional funding and provide election officials with ideas for how to spend any election security funding they already have.
