In order to stop our election process from any further assault, I think it’s wise to employ the famous quote from hockey great Wayne Gretzky. “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been”.
One lesson conservatives can learn from the left is that they never quit. They’re absolutely relentless and when laws are passed that thwart their progressive agenda, they simply figure out a way to push their agenda while skirting around the law.
So what’s their next move when it comes to subverting elections?
Enter Zuckbucks 2.0. - The US Alliance for Election Excellence
In 2020, we saw an organization called the Center for Tech and Civic Life funded by Mark Zuckerberg pump $400M into the US election system under the guise of COVID relief. The CTCL claimed they were providing funding for personal protective equipment to make voting “safer” during the pandemic, but what we found is very little of that money went into PPE. Rather, millions of dollars were spent funding drop boxes and satellite offices in heavy Democrat parts of the country to help drive voter turnout in blue cities. Over $22M of that went into Pennsylvania alone.
Since the 2020 election, 24 states including PA, passed laws banning non-profit, private money from being used in elections, but that doesn’t mean the left is going to just roll over and give up.
Enter the US Alliance for Election Excellence. It sounds like a good thing, doesn’t it? Look at the list of their partners. This is taken directly from their website.
All of these groups are headed by people who have a left leaning background in Democrat politics, and it appears as though their goal is to build an alliance across the nation of private, shadow secretaries of state by influencing local election offices and how they are run. This coalition of left wing groups are committed to opposing things like voter ID laws, cleaning up the voter rolls, and everything that conservatives are fighting so hard for in order to protect our votes and increase transparency.
The scary thing is that at a glance, they look harmless… maybe even helpful. Look at this screenshot taken from their website that outlines their “mission”.
The John Locke Foundation, a conservative think tank in North Carolina, recently partnered with the Honest Elections Project and together, they complied information from public records requests and put together a report that details the real agenda of the US Alliance for Election Excellence. Here is a link to the full report.

Moving forward, it’s going to be important for the grassroots to keep a close eye on this organization in hopes of keeping them from influencing our local election offices. One thing I found pretty disturbing is the statement on their website from Pennsylvania’s new acting Secretary of State, Al Schmidt
Just because Pennsylvania has banned private money from being used in our elections, doesn’t mean the Alliance will stay away. Quite the contrary. They have formulated a “membership” plan that includes “scholarship” money and a credit system designed to circumvent the laws that are banning the private money. I have no doubt that Al Schmidt will attempt to partner with them in his new capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth before the 2024 election. It’s up to us to keep an eye on it, and potentially stop it.
I get asked all the time, “What can we do? I want to help secure our elections, but where do I start?” I think the best place to start is by setting up a meeting and building a relationship with your county Commissioners and the Election Director. That way when things like this come up, you already have an established relationship with the person in charge of the local office and you can find out quicker if groups like this have already reached out locally or not. We have confirmed that the US Alliance for Election Excellence has already contacted one county in Pennsylvania.
If you don’t have that relationship, you can fill out an RTK (public records request) in order to obtain all the election office communication to see if they’ve had contact with the Alliance or not, but that takes a lot longer… still worth doing while you start building relationships.
Education is key and the fix is local. :-)

Building a relationship with your local officials is key. I got to know our local Commissioners, and the Election Director and her staff. When I did the True the Vote IV3 voter roll project last summer I agreed to pursue the challenges at the time in the election cycle when they could process them without their heads exploding. I was only able to file about 90% of the challenges BUT built a relationship that enables me to come back this year and file more challenges. We are a heavily Republican County but I know that relationship building would still have been the best approach even in a Democrat County.
