Unfortunately, Americans have lost faith in the integrity of our nation's election results. Fraud and lawlessness have become all too common in our electoral system. We hope to change that perception. True the Vote is a citizen-led effort to restore truth, faith, and integrity to our elections.
We are working to restore integrity to the American system of electing its leaders. With True the Vote, we have deconstructed the entire process by focusing on educating voters; examining voter registries; and recruiting, training and mobilizing election workers and poll watchers. After collecting and analyzing data along the way, we then use the findings to advocate for government action and legislative agendas to support desperately needed election code reform.
VoteStand uses a high-level encryption inside the app, allowing information to get to the right people and make reporting voter fraud easier. Count on us to provide you with the best reporting tool around.
After an easy sign-up, the app is ready to use for reporting all visual evidence of voter fraud. The process is as easy as taking a picture and filling out specific identifying information about the incident. That's it!
The app uses your geo-location and the user-filed report in order to provide enough evidence to pursue legal action against the person/persons committing the fraud
Once the fraud is found, you will be able to share your breaking story with the help of some of the biggest social networks around. Your picture may even make our top 10 wall.
If an election is worth stealing, someone is willing to steal it. As an Election Integrity Activist you can help ensure that every eligible vote counts by downloading VoteStand and using it to quickly report problems at the polls.
Our app equips everyday citizens to become Election Integrity Activists who:

Voter registration fraud is the act of registering to vote, or registering someone else to vote, in order to garnish more votes for a specific candidate.
Dead people voting is a type of election fraud that occurs when the name of a deceased person remains on a state's official list of registered voters and a living person fraudulently casts a ballot in that name.
Felon vote fraud occurs when a convicted felon, who is not eligible to vote (varies by state) casts a ballot anyway. When that happens, the vote is illegal.
The term "absentee ballot vote fraud" can extend to manipulation, deception or intimidation of voters made possible by absentee ballots. Detecting fraud in this area of voting is more difficult because absentee voting is less easily regulated and not often observed as in-person voting.
Voter suppression refers to tactics aimed at lowering or suppressing the number of voters who might otherwise vote in a particular election. Voter intimidation is a form of suppression, and it involves putting undue pressure on a voter or group of voters so that they will vote a particular way, or not at all. Intimidation tactics include:
Electronic voter fraud includes individuals tampering with the hardware or software of a voting machine to alter vote totals or favor any candidate.
Voter impersonation is a type of vote fraud in which a person claims to be someone else when casting a vote.
Ballot Stuffing is when one person submits multiple ballots during a single election. Fraud is also committed when an individual votes in multiple polling locations during the same election.
Electioneering is any visible or audible activity that advocates for or against any candidate or measure on the ballot. This includes signage, clothing, buttons, or materials like pens and brochures that carry messages about items on the ballot. Most states have laws that ban electioneering within a certain amount of feet from a polling station.
This type of fraud occurs when people distribute false or misleading information in order to affect the outcome of an election including giving voters incorrect information about the time or place of polling,
While some states allow video and photography inside the polling stations as long as it is not intrusive or considered intimidating to voters, most do not. Check the laws in your state but remember to:
If you want to take photographs or shoot video inside your polling place, you must be cautious to avoid violating the law. Election laws are serious business – if you break them, you could be removed from the polling place and even subject to criminal penalties.
Even if you are permitted to take photographs or video inside the polling place, you should be discreet and sensitive to the concerns of poll workers and other voters. The smaller your equipment is, the better. You are more likely to get permission if you use a cell phone camera.
Keep in mind that all states prohibit activities that interfere with the voting process or intimidate voters, and poll workers and other voters might see your photographing or videotaping as disruptive or intimidating. You should never photograph or film someone else’s ballot or get too close to other voters with your camera.
If a voter objects, stop filming that person immediately.
Don’t try to interview other voters inside the polling place and avoid any appearance of trying to solicit or influence someone else’s vote.
