Protecting Election Officials from Digital Threats

In 2020, online mobs tracked down information about election workers and their families, and shared what they found: home addresses, personal phone numbers, email addresses, and social media accounts. Publishing this data, or doxxing, they encouraged online and offline intimidation and threats. The impact of threats and intimidation on our nation’s election workers should not be underestimated.

We produced this paper, in partnership with The Elections Group, to discuss how to secure election officials in upcoming election cycles. We recommend concrete steps election officials can take in their individual capacities to strengthen their resilience against online harassment that turns physical.
