CATCH-UP

Let me know if you'd like help installing your apps.  I'd be happy to jump on a zoom and share screens and tips.   

Greetings SQUINTers !
 
The election season is in full swing, and events are happening at warp speed.  As you look at social media, you still have the capability of saying something when you see something -- mis-information or dis-information about the electoral processes. 
 
This message has links to installation guides and information about MITRE-SQUINT.  I am also including links to the reports and news bulletins that MITRE-SQUINT has sent out.  All of these materials are in the LWVCO Document Library (Voter Services > SQUINT folder). 
 
 
The MITRE-SQUINT team is completing enrollment of our latest group of volunteers.  They will be sending text messages with passwords to allow you to install the app on your phone.  They should also be setting up a zoom call to introduce themselves to everyone and to explain the program. 
 
In the meantime, you can check out the information we have to answer early questions.  The links  below are to documents in the LWVCO Document Library (Voter Services > SQUINT folder). 
 
 
Reports and bulletins we have received: 
 
 
If you have lost the email from MITRE that give you the password for your phone installation, you can request a replacement from:  squint@mitre.org

 

 

Thank you for volunteering to report mis/ disinformation about elections and voting that you find on social media,  We are enrolled in the MITRE SQUINT See-Something-Say-Something program to protect electoral integrity.  


More information is available on the LWVCO website: 
 
 
Background
 
Gerry Cummins, LWVCO Director of Voter Services, was contacted by MITRE and the LWV Alexandria VA to participate in the SQUINT program.  After speaking with the program director at MITRE, we asked the LWVCO Board to approve our participation on 9 July. 
 
An enrollment form was posted online, and by 31 July we had our first slate of volunteers. 
 
We will be working with the electoral security team at the Secretary of State's Office.  When we SQUINTers report incorrect or misleading election information on social media, the security specialists at the Colorado Secretary of State's Office will receive a report.  The League will support their efforts to combat misinformation and disinformation. 
 
Check the LWVCO SQUINT webpage for more information.
