2016 Presidential Election

During the course of 2017, FFEC will look into a number of issues of concern involving the 2016 presidential election. Visit this page to find information posted about the following topics:

  • HACKING & DISINFORMATION: Did a foreign government choose our president? What is the evidence? How can we tell the facts from propaganda? How can we protect our elections from cyber-warfare?
  • INACCURATE PREDICTIONS & THEIR EFFECT ON THE OUTCOME:  Leading up to and throughout Election Day, the media, polls, and statistical models confidently projected a Clinton victory. How did the experts get it so wrong? Does the difference between predictions and results cast doubt on the integrity of the vote? Did the predictions themselves influence the outcome?
  • VOTER FRAUD & VOTE SUPPRESSION:  What about claims that millions of non-citizens voted in 2016? Will these allegations be used to disenfranchise minority voters? What can be done to clean up the rolls without jeopardizing the rights of legitimate voters?

Why Florida Must Insist on Changes to the DS 200

Problems with ES&S' newly certified optical scanner led to lost votes in Florida's 2008 general election.  Because of our findings, the state of Wisconsin has already required changes to the new optical scanner's overvote feature.  The Brennan Center at NYU is also citing our findings in its request to New York state that it mandate similar changes.  Read a concise summary of our findings and our recommendations for changes to the system to prevent unnecessary vote loss.

Also read our Fact Sheet on overvoting in Miami-Dade on the DS 200 in the 2008 presidential election and how the overvote problem disproportionately affected the county's minority voters.
