TREK THE VOTE

Trekkies organizing for fair and ethical elections.

"The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth, whether it's scientific truth or historical truth or personal truth! It is the guiding principle on which Starfleet is based." - Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Stardate 45703.9

Trek the Vote is a grassroots, fan-driven volunteer drive.

 

Our mission is to connect our fellow American Star Trek fans with non-partisan groups working to ensure a fair and equitable electoral process in our communities, and to carry the principles and work ethic we've learned from Star Trek along for the ride.​

FREQUENT QUERIES

ARE YOU FOR OR AGAINST ANY CANDIDATES?

Each individual member of the Federation Council is free to express their own opinions about everyone and everything on the ballot, but Trek the Vote is a non-partisan initiative.

That means our only interest is to have an election in which every eligible American gets to vote easily and safely and each vote is scrupulously counted and certified by local and state elections officials.

ARE YOU AN OFFICIAL STAR TREK  PROJECT?

Star Trek is the intellectual property of CBS.

 

We are a grassroots network of Trek fans, actors, and behind-the-scenes professionals and not affiliated with CBS.

 

WHY DO YOU SAY THERE WILL BE MISSION OPPORTUNITIES AFTER ELECTION DAY?

Most Americans are used to getting election results the night of the election, but because so many people are voting by mail this year, it will likely take days or even weeks before we know the results.

We are basing our plans to offer another set of Trek the Vote missions to volunteers after November 3 on the findings of the non-partisan Transition Integrity Project, which projected a high likelihood that significant public engagement will be required in the post-election period to ensure that every vote is counted before results are certified or announced.
