Ad Hoc Committee for 2024 Election Fairness and Legitimacy – 24 for ’24: Urgent Recommendations

Recognizing the need to address the issues of distrust and non-acceptance of fair election results in the U.S., UCLA Law School’s Safeguarding Democracy Project convened an ad hoc committee made up of 24 diverse scholars and leaders to tackle these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. After public meetings and online deliberations, the Committee made 24 recommendations to increase fairness and help bolster the legitimacy of the 2024 elections. These recommendations are aimed at advancing access for all eligible voters, protecting election integrity, and enhancing the public’s confidence in the fairness and accuracy of the results. They call for action from legislators on the federal, state, and local levels; journalists and editors; tech companies; and civic leaders, nonprofit organizations, citizens, and social media influencers.
