The Local Leadership Council was established by the EAC on June 8, 2021. This new FACA board is made up of 100 local election officials who are current or former officers in each state’s local election official association. As leaders and officials who work firsthand to administer elections at the local level, the advisory board will provide recommendations and direct feedback to the EAC on a range of election administration topics to include but not limited to voter registration and voter list maintenance, voting system user practices, ballot administration (programming, printing, and logistics), processing, accounting, canvassing, auditing and testing of ballots, and certification of results. EAC Vice Chair Thomas Hicks serves as the Designated Federal Officer (DFO) for the Local Leadership Council and was appointed DFO on May 13, 2021.
