Activities[edit]

In October 2010, American Majority Action released the Voter Fraud App, a smartphone application developed to report and track illegal voting activity at polling places. Using photographs and text, the Voter Fraud App compiled a list of vote fraud incidents and was updated in real-time throughout election day.[3]

In 2012, American Majority Action launched a "#FireBoehner" campaign aimed at removing John Boehner from his position as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.[4][5]
