About Us

Election Defense Alliance (EDA) is a participatory organization of citizens collaborating at the local, state, and national levels to defend against electoral theft, establish transparent vote counting, and ensure that governments accountable to the people are legitimately elected.

Our Mission

Election Defense Alliance (EDA) seeks to expose election fraud and restore electoral integrity as the foundation of American democracy.

We work to alert the citizenry to the illusions and dangers of privatized, computerized, fraud-prone voting machines, and we work to replace this illegitimate system of secret vote-counting with hand-counted paper ballot elections, conducted by citizens in the precincts in public view, so that the vote-counting process is transparent, secure, verified, and fully accountable to the voters.

Ultimately, America's citizens will achieve electoral integrity and overcome overt voter suppression and covert fraud and manipulation, by reviving traditions of citizen-conducted, precinct-based, hand-counted paper ballot voting, and establishing these principles and methods in state and federal election law to ensure electoral integrity and the legitimacy of government.

Election Defense Alliance is a program of Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. Donations to Election Defense Alliance are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
