TREKKIES ARE IDEAL ELECTION INTEGRITY VOLUNTEERS.

The 16 million Star Trek fans in the United States have been steeped in the values of fairness, inclusivity, and respect for democracy for decades.


We tend to be scrupulous, diligent, and unafraid to care passionately about the future; which makes us exactly the kind of volunteers you need.

WE'LL BRING THE TREKKIES TO YOU.

We're creating a video call to action starring cast members from multiple Star Trek series. The video will send Trekkies on a "Starfleet mission" to save democracy. 


Trekkies will then be directed to a smart signup that right-fits them into volunteer opportunities with our election partners.

OUR ELECTION PARTNERS

We're already working with some great election integrity partners and we hope you'll join them.

Elections can’t happen without poll workers. And most poll workers are older and at a higher risk of complications from Covid. Now is the time for young people across America to step up, serve our country, and make sure the 2020 election is a success.

The national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition was formed to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process. Made up of more than 100 local, state, and national partners, Election Protection works year-round to advance and defend the right to vote.

The National Election Defense Coalition (NEDC) began our work in 2013. Our mission is to build a bipartisan movement to secure the nation’s vulnerable voting systems from manipulation and fraud, and to protect every American’s right to have their vote counted.

MORE COMING SOON!

We're in talks now with half a dozen more organizations doing everything from poll monitoring to legal support, as well as preparing to defend the legitimacy of the results post-election.

PROJECT STATUS

We have two confirmed cast members and two more who have expressed serious interest. We have ongoing outreach to more than a dozen Trek cast members.

We have three confirmed and six more seriously interested election partners who are recruiting volunteers and / or paid poll workers.

We have a working software requirements document and are actively coding the necessary infrastructure to right-fit volunteers with our partners. This effort is being managed by two ex-Microsoft software engineers with specialties in front end development and data science.

Our goal is to launch the video and site on September 15, but we may have to push back depending on how long it takes us to recruit more cast members.
