Knight News Challenge: Hack Voting

The Knight News Challenge on Elections is now open for applications, asking people to submit ideas that address the question: How might we better inform voters and increase civic participation before, during and after elections? A collaboration between Knight, the Democracy Fund, the Hewlett Foundation and the Rita Allen Foundation, the challenge is offering more than $3 million for innovative ideas.

If you have questions about the application, you can join us for virtual office hours or in-person events in cities across the country to learn more about the News Challenge. The schedule, which is regularly updated, can be accessed here.

To enter and for more information, go to and answer a few questions by March 19. For more information take a look at this press release and blog post. Follow #newschallenge on Twitter for updates and please spread the word through your networks.
