Legends of Elections

A special message from EAC's Legends to our Election Officials nationwide; Thank you for all that you do!


In a new series of videos, Commissioner Matt Masterson sits down with some of the greats in the field of election administration. The purpose of the series is to capture the knowledge and wisdom that can only be gained through decades of experience with the voting process.

The first conversation is with Doug Lewis, executive director of the Election Center from 1994-2015. Doug led the Election Center's essential education efforts and was a steady presence in the field which saw an incredible amount of change during his tenure.

In the second conversation with a legend of elections, Commissioner Masterson sits down and speaks with Shelley McThomas, former Democratic Director of the Kansas City, Missouri, Board of Elections, where she served nearly nine years before retiring earlier this year.

In a third conversation with a legend of elections, Commissioner Masterson speaks with Peggy Nighswonger, who served as the election director in Wyoming for nearly twenty years.
