Embedded Player Your vote is secret. But the fact that you voted in an election is typically public record.

So some people who falsely believe the 2020 election was stolen have tried to audit the results themselves by going door to door in neighborhoods across the country.

NPR's Miles Parks and Colorado Public Radio's Bente Birkeland report on this canvassing effort. It's part of a controversial movement to galvanize everyday Americans to try to uncover voter fraud in their own communities.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
