"THe EAC thanks our military heroes."

This month, the EAC honors the military personnel who serve our country.  

The EAC has several resources available to support military voters and the election officials who assist them, including a Fact Sheet and Pocket Guide created in partnership with the Federal Voting Assistance Program, as well as policies broken down by state, research, reports, and more. Election officials may also find this EAC blog post with advice on how to support military and UOCAVA voters helpful.  

In fact, many veterans continue to serve our country as poll workers. To learn more, watch these interviews EAC Vice Chair Donald Palmer conducted with West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner and Alabama Secretary of State Wes Allen on their Heroes at the Polls programs. They offer guidance and best practices on how to recruit veterans for these important roles.
