A Guide to the VoteTrustUSA Website PDF Print Email
By Warren Stewart   
December 17, 2005
Welcome to the VoteTrustUSA website! This website has been designed as a news and information resource about how votes are cast and counted in the United States. We hope that it will be useful to citizens concerned about the accuracy, transparency, and security of our election process. We welcome comments and suggestions about how we can better serve voters, election officials, and legislators in ensuring the integrity of elections. Please write to .

The VTUSA website is constructed of Sections, with Categories linked to  those Sections. Each Category and Section is both a resource page and a blog of relevant articles. Almost all content on the site provides an opportunity for registered users to post comments.

In the VoteTrustBlog we include observation and opinion articles by our resident VoteTrustUSA Bloggers - John Gideon, Joan Krawitz, and Warren Stewart - as well as a range of Guest Bloggers. We welcome submissions for posting on the VoteTrustBlog.

The News Section features a newsfeed generated by our information manager John Gideon, who tirelessly sorts through all the voting news from around the country. It also includes links to John's picks for the Top Five News Stories of each week. VoteTrustUSA publishes a weekly newsletter The Election Integrity News. You can automatically subscribe for the newsletter by registering on the website or by sending an email to .

The National Section focuses on the institutions, both governmental and non-governmental, that impact our election process nationally. Within this section you will find a page devoted to Federal Legislation as well as pages for The Election Assistance Commission, The Federal Election Commission, The Department of Justice Voting Section, as well as a page devoted to The Help America Vote Act. There are also pages for influential non-governmental organizations like The National Association of Secretaries of State and The National Association of State Election Directors The Election Center, and The Carter-Baker Commission on Federal Election Reform. The national page also includes categories for General Topics and Accessibility Issues as well as links to important national organizations working on election integrity issues. Many of these pages includes topic specific newsfeeds and all include links and resource materials.

The States Section focuses on state issues and includes a page for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia, which you can access from the links in the right hand sidebar. VoteTrustUSA's primary mission is to provide a national voice for state and local election integrity organizations. In the States Section you can find links to over fifty state level groups in the left hand sidebar as well as links to state election administration and voting system information and resource sites as well as state-specific newsfeeds for many states .

The Vendors Section concerns the companies that provide the voting systems on which we cast our votes and then count those votes and also those vendors that provide the databases that state election officials use to determine where we vote and whether we are allowed to vote at all. In this section you will find links to pages for each of the major vendors of voting machines and voter registration databases. These pages contain constantly updated newsfeeds and, for publically-traded companies, stock quotes along with basic company information and specialized reports about the systems they produce.

The Get Involved Section provides suggestions for how you can help to ensure the accuracy and transparency of our elections. This Section also includes a calendar of election related events.

You can find out more about VoteTrustUSA in the About Us Section. We also maintain a Message Board that includes forums for each state. Finally, VoteTrustUSA, often in conjunction with state level groups, facilitates Action Alerts through a web service that allows signers to easily direct emails to the national and state legislators.

We hope you find this site helpful and informative.
