The U.S. Election Assistance Commission and Pepperdine University will host a series of panels in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) and the 25th anniversary of Pepperdine’s School of Public Policy. Election officials and subject matter experts will hold panels on confidence in elections, security and technology in elections, current issues in election administration, and the future of elections.
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC), in partnership with Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy, will hold a series of panels on confidence in elections, security and technology in elections, current issues in election administration, and the future of elections. “Confidence in Elections” will discuss some of the data identifying trends for the increase in mis- and dis-information, and ways to address the challenges that stem from it. “Security and Technology in Elections” will discuss the role of election officials as IT managers, which requires a unique set of attitudes, knowledge, and skills to plan, direct, and control contemporary election administration. “Current Issues in Election Administration (Clearinghouse/HAVA Grants)” will discuss election funding through HAVA and the impact those grants have on supporting elections during critical moments over the last 20 years. “Future of Elections- HAVA 20 Years From Now” will discuss how HAVA is still relevant, how elections will evolve in the future, and what can be done to continue confidence in our elections.
This event will be held in-person but also live streamed on the EAC's YouTube Channel:
