EAC Chairman Thomas Hicks Issues Statement

in Memory of Longtime Overseas Voting Advocate Lucy Stensland Laederich

Today, U.S. Election Assistance Commission Chairman Thomas Hicks issued the following statement memorializing Lucy Stensland Laederich, a longtime advocate for American voters overseas who recently lost her battle with cancer:

“Lucy was a fierce and devoted advocate who worked to ensure Americans living overseas in all corners of the world could participate in U.S. elections. Through her service with the Association of Americans Resident Overseas, Paris, as well as The Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas, Lucy brought together U.S. voters living abroad with the information and resources needed to fully participate in our democracy. While she spent her time in Paris, her advocacy had no borders and her work impacted civilian Americans across the globe. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Lucy during her exemplary career, and her efforts leave a legacy of election access that each of us should emulate.”
