I’m thankful for election administrators, who work tirelessly behind the scenes at a very difficult and often underfunded job, and who usually only get attention when things go wrong.
I’m thankful for those in the election reform community, who are seeking to create a fairer democracy, and especially to those who speak out against injustice and threats to our democracy and the rule of law.
I’m thankful for those in election security community, who are seeking to ensure we can have elections free of interference and errors.
I’m thankful for the UCI IT staff, which makes sure that ELB remains up and running despite challenges (and occasional attacks).
I’m most thankful for ELB readers, who provide tips, give feedback, and make this service worthwhile to support even after 15 years.
