Election officials often have a wide range of responsibilities in addition to managing elections, such as communications or public relations manager. Although its application will differ among offices, the EAC created this booklet to help election offices successfully communicate with the public, and plan for challenges that may arise throughout their work. This guide has something to help with your office's communications needs, including:

  • Tactics
  • Planning
  • Crisis Management
  • Engaging with Journalists and the Media
  • Consistent Branding and Messaging
  • Running Events
  • and more
