Why We Invested
The Center for Technology and Civic Life is dedicated to helping election officials rise to their technical challenges with easy-to-use tools and practices. To accomplish this, CTCL convenes election officials and helps them identify their greatest needs and then looks for collaborative solutions. CTCL is also a leader on the collection and organization of ballot data, looking to improve the way this information is created and shared.
Democracy Fund believes that supporting the capacity of local election officials through innovative tools and technical training is key to ensuring a modern, trusted, and voter-centric election administration system. Effective election administration enhances the public’s trust in elections, which increases voter participation.
