Honest Elections Project Action Applauds Greenwich for Refusing to Join Left-Wing U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence

Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action:

“Greenwich, CT made the right decision last night when the Representative Town Meeting voted to reject membership in the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, led by the left-wing Center for Tech and Civic Life. The momentum against CTCL’s latest attempt to influence election offices continues to grow. Ottawa County, Michigan, has also refused to join citing concerns that joining would jeopardize public trust in elections, and two counties in North Carolina will accept no privately funded grants. Those concerns are warranted. DeKalb County, Georgia, is currently under investigation for accepting private election funding from CTCL in violation of Georgia state law, while Boone County, Missouri, spent tax dollars to join the Alliance without informing the public.

“Fair and neutral election administration is key to the public’s faith in democracy. The private funding of elections inherently sows distrust in them. Towns and counties who have been offered funding from CTCL should follow the lead of Greenwich and Ottawa County and refuse to join the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence.”
