Verified Voting, the nation's leading election integrity organization, today announced the appointment of John DeCock as our new Executive Director.
"We are delighted to have John join our team," said Verified Voting President Pamela Smith. "John's appointment signals an important step in our efforts to safeguard elections and to support each voter's right to cast an effective ballot. John's exceptional skills and experience will support our outreach and ability to share our resources with a broad range of communities, from voters to policymakers to election officials and more. Working together with John, I am certain that we will continue making vital contributions towards achieving reliable and publicly verifiable elections."
"There is nothing more fundamental to our Democracy than the right to vote and the knowledge that each vote matters and will be properly counted," said DeCock. "I am looking forward to working with the talented staff and board at Verified Voting, as well as with the many experts who have collectively achieved so much. There still is much to do to improve the systems by which we cast our votes and to guarantee that every voter knows that his or her vote is counted as cast."
