“With another election cycle underway, officials aim to quell fears of voter fraud, rigging”

USA Today:

Ahead of another election cycle that is already shaping up to be contentious, federal and state election officials are in the midst of campaigns of their own to convince wary voters about the integrity of casting their ballots.

They are recruiting poll workers, certifying voting machines and hosting lessons on how election systems work in community centers, classrooms and libraries.

The steps are needed, experts say, to restore voters’ confidence in a system that, despite some flaws and outspoken election deniers, was mostly trustworthy and secure in the first place.

Election-explaining efforts come as former President Donald Trump and others continue to falsely claim the 2020 presidential election was stolen. But election officials said many voters simply aren’t familiar with the election process.
