Uptime.com Joins Forces With ProPublica

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Nov 28, 2018 - Website monitoring service Uptime.com (http://www.uptime.com) recently provided services to ProPublica’s Electionland project to help journalists report on voter access, cybersecurity and election integrity in the 2018 midterm elections.

Uptime.com’s specialized website alert monitoring tool tracked official election-related websites to detect and document voting impediments and disruptions from website outages, hacking and other issues. ProPublica used the Uptime.com API to monitor the performance of more than 4,000 sites — including voter information, online registration, polling and registration site lookup and election returns sites — across the country every five minutes to provide accurate, real-time data during the elections.

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates and exposes abuses of power by the government, businesses, and other institutions. The organization created Electionland as a free, collaborative resource for journalists to share data and leads regarding election problems in their area. The goal: to help reporters shed light on troubling issues like harassment at the polls, ballot confusion, misleading information, and broken voting machines.

Just as a healthy infrastructure is an enterprise’s most valuable asset, a healthy election infrastructure is the lifeblood of democracy. It was gratifying to participate in the Electionland initiative and help ProPublica detect threats to voter information and access – particularly at this crucial moment in our country’s history.
