ProtectAmerica.vote, June 22, 2022
Our vote is how we hold government accountable. We need to be informed and engaged. Citizens must be ready to vote and Sheriffs must be ready to enforce the law, as well as protect their constituents from any form of illegal activity.
Today we begin a national effort to equip sheriffs, educate citizens and protect our elections. Election laws were put into place to protect every American voice - and those laws should be followed.
This is About The Rule of Law
“Sheriffs primary duty is to the protect the rights of their constituents, which includes their rights as voters. ProtectAmerica.vote aims to solve this problem and bridge the gap between voters and local law enforcement. Our work will ensure we have secure elections in this country.” SHERIFF MARK LAMB
“Over 80% of Americans are concerned about the lack of integrity in America’s elections. Voters want to be helpful but aren’t sure where to turn in times of trouble. ProtectAmerica.vote will help connect citizens and Sheriffs and help open communications to support Local law enforcement to engage if the need arises.” CATHERINE ENGELBRECHT
Voters are understandably confused by constantly changing election rules and increasingly frustrated by lack of leadership. Put simply, they don’t know where to turn should the election processes break down. Our goal is to unite citizens and their sheriffs to work together, ensuring the real voice of America’s vote is heard loud and clear.
2: EMPOWERING SHERIFFS
We will provide local Sheriffs with the training, resources and tools to have real-time eyes on voting in their county. Our goal is to provide Sheriffs with crucial information from around the country that includes:
- Providing information on election laws specific to their state
- Developing a grants function to provide technology and support for visibility into allegations of violations as reported throughout their county
- Best practices to support citizens and uphold election integrity
3: OPEN LINES OF COMMUNICATION
We’ve set up a National Election Integrity Voter Hotline to help citizens in getting information and reporting problems. The hotline will be connected to sheriffs’ offices for quick evaluation of incoming information. It will go live on August 1, 2022.
4: PROMOTE PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGES
Starting August 1, 2022 we will begin an informational campaign to educate voters state-by-state through multiple mediums, including television, online and radio.
Our efforts will include press conferences in key states with County Sheriffs to raise visibility around election integrity.
