Amidst an onslaught of attacks from a sitting President and the deadly threat of a global pandemic, local election administrators work around the clock to secure the vote for their community. Rhode Island’s election teams take center stage in this unprecedented voting adventure.

Election administrators were once invisible to the general public. Despite the unbelievable challenges and desperate attempts to disrupt and upend the 2020 election, they pulled off the most secure election in our history; and they did it amidst a global pandemic.  

Rather than receiving a hero’s welcome, they have become the focus of an ongoing coordinated campaign of disinformation. 

NO TIME TO FAIL gives voice to the experiences of this largely invisible, yet completely indispensable workforce, at this critical time in our country’s relationship with election management.
