Voters trust that our elections take place without interference. MITRE supports state and local election officials with the objective advice and tools to combat threats to our voting infrastructure.

Our work includes:

  • Our SQUINT™ app lets election officials report disinformation from social media about the voting/registration process with a swipe, tap, or click.
  • MITRE's new National Election Security Lab provides trusted, independent analysis for the systems used in federal, state, and local elections.
  • Guidelines for securing voter registration systems and holding a safe election during the COVID-19 pandemic.
