Dear democracy advocates,
Democracy Chronicles is a news media venture focused on the all important effort to establish and strengthen democracy across the globe. In the United States, Democracy Chronicles provides reporting on elections and election reform including universal ballot access, election methods, money in elections, redistricting, term limits, third party access, transparency, and voter registration. Once beyond the borders of the democratic world, this website focuses on the raging struggle for the establishment and strengthening of free and fair elections on every continent.
We are committed to the election process as the only viable form of government in the modern world and are advocates for the establishment of democracy in all countries immediately and without exception. In other words, we aim to be exactly the type of website that is banned in authoritarian and totalitarian states – and we are proud of this fact.
Also, check out our Bookstore and Democracy Artists section where democracy artists of all kinds make political cartoons, poetry, design, graphic art, photography, music, video, drawings, animation, and other original art.
Democracy Chronicles is the product of a network of democracy activists and we are actively looking for creative new contributors to join our team. If you or someone you know is interested in contributing there is no better time than the present. We are expanding and we want to hear from people from all kind of backgrounds and perspectives. Republican or Democrat, in Brooklyn or Bangladesh, we are looking for people who want to get their hands dirty and join the democracy fight.
Adrian Tawfik has run Democracy Chronicles since 2011. He received a B.A. from New School University and is based in New York City. Democracy Chronicles will feature his articles collected in World Citizen, a series of articles that will be concerned with all things democracy.

Sean Stevens is a graduate student at Rutgers University pursuing a doctoral degree in social psychology who is currently in the process of conducting studies for his dissertation. His research focuses on how social attitudes and beliefs are assessed, how the psychological and societal foundations of morality relate to (and possibly somewhat determine) an individual’s political ideology, and how an individual’s political ideology influences their information-processing and decision making.
