Poll reveals alarming level of fear of whether 2024 elections will be ‘fair,’ ballot counting accurate

According to a recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, a staggering 71% of Americans believe that the 2024 US elections either will not be “fair” or that they are uncertain if the elections will be fair. Additionally, 55% of Americans are concerned that ballot counting will be inaccurate. This poll reveals an alarming level of fear surrounding the fairness and accuracy of the 2024 American elections, especially as this election will take place after a period of growing speculation and suspicion concerning voter fraud and the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Given this worrying outcome, local governments and election officials must work together to ensure that the 2024 US elections remain secure, transparent, and fair. This will require strong commitment to election security and the implementation of measures such as improved technology security systems, increased poll worker training, and stronger enforcement of laws guaranteeing voting access. In addition, media outlets and fact-checking organizations must play their part in providing reliable and balanced information about the election process and any alleged electoral irregularities. If these methods are not put into place, the result could be a surge in distrust of the electoral system and falling turnouts on election day. This could have severe repercussions if the 2024 US elections are held, as trust in the democracy in the United States and beyond could be heavily damaged should voters fear that their vote will not be counted or considered invalid.
