This month’s topic examines the Campaign Legal Center’s recent report: (Dis) Trust in Elections – Identifying Who Distrusts the Election Process and Why. As a new election cycle dawns, CLC believes now is the time to educate, provide transparency and rebuild Americans’ confidence in our elections. With that goal in mind, CLC commissioned a study by the Ad Council Research Institute (ACRI) to determine Americans’ trust in the election process. Informed by a dual-phased, mixed-methods research study, ACRI and CLC targeted seven key states: Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Nevada, North Carolina and Georgia. The resulting (Dis)Trust in Elections report was released in May 2023.
