Election Security and Safety

Information for mayors and other city officials

As in 2020, there is significant concern that the 2022 midterm elections face a wide range of security threats, including foreign cyber interference, disinformation campaigns, threats of physical violence against election officials, and voter intimidation. Several organizations have developed materials that may be helpful to mayors and other city officials, and we are posting them here. We will continue to update this resource as new information becomes available.
