EOLDN is a project of The Center for Election Innovation & Research (CEIR) and contributes to CEIR’s overall work of restoring trust in the American election system and promoting election procedures that encourage participation while ensuring election integrity and security.
Across the United States, election officials are enduring threats, harassment, intimidation, defamation, and, in some states, exposure to criminal penalties, for simply doing their jobs of administering fair elections. EOLDN stands by, ready to connect election officials in need of
qualified pro bono attorneys who can provide advice or assistance.
EOLDN can also connect an elections office to a communications professional, free of charge. This service helps election officials address issues related to elections or election administration on behalf of their county office or agency. Communications support could include ongoing communication strategy support during an election; message development, for example, a response to misinformation or an attack on election integrity; or rapid response and media relations.
EOLDN’s services are available regardless of political affiliation. As a public charity exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, CEIR may not participate or intervene in any political campaign on behalf of, or in opposition to, candidates for public office.
