It’s been nearly a year since the Department of Justice the U.S. Department of Justice established an Election Threats Task Force to address the rise in threats against election workers, administrators, officials, and others associated with the electoral process. As the world saw during the Jan 6 hearings, poll workers like Shaye Moss faced dire threats and bogus claims of wrongdoing for simply believing in democracy.

Recently the Alliance for Securing Democracy released a report headlined “Deterring Threats to Election Workers: Recommendations for the Department of Justice’s Election Threats Task Force” that outlines some  suggestions for the task to use to better fight threats. David Levine is the Elections Integrity Fellow at the Alliance for Securing Democracy and one of the authors of the report. He joined the podcast me to discuss the efforts to subvert the administration of U.S. elections.
