The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) hosted local election officials for a public forum on election security in Miami on April 18, 2018. The forum came just weeks after the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 provided $380 million in new Help America Vote Act (HAVA) Election Fund grants.
The EAC public forum was the first of its kind ahead of the 2018 election and will be an opportunity for state and local election officials from across the nation to provide statements about their election cybersecurity efforts. The discussion also featured details about the new funding and EAC’s leadership efforts in this area.
EAC Chairman Thomas Hicks and Vice Chair Christy McCormick hosted the forum, which took place ahead of the Commission’s annual Standards Board and Board of Advisors meeting in Miami. The event also featured a presentation by Mark Abbott, the EAC’s Director of Grants.
This event was open to the public and was streamed online.
