I’m Lori Augino, President of the National Association of State Election Directors. If you’ve got election administration questions – voter registration, how to vote, election security – I’ve got answers. Ask me anything!
Hi! I’m Lori Augino, the President of the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) and the Director of Elections for Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman. NASED is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, professional association for state election officials in all 50 states, DC, and the five US territories.
So now, let’s talk elections! Election administration varies a lot from state-to-state, but I’m ready to help, whether you’re in Washington State, Washington, DC, or anywhere in between. I have more than two decades of experience in elections at both the state and local level, so ask me all of your election administration questions: what’s different this year, the steps state and local election officials take to secure the vote, and anything else you’ve been dying to know about election administration but haven’t known who to ask.
This AMA has ended.
Thanks everyone for joining today, but I have to head out! Follow NASED on Twitter (NASEDorg) - we'll try to get to more questions there.
Where ever you are, make sure you're #ReadytoVote. If your state's voter registration deadline hasn't passed, register to vote or update your voter registration if your information has changed, even if you just moved down the block! Take a few minutes to plan how you'll vote - where, when, and how you'll cast your ballot, and if you're able to do so, consider applying to be an election worker. We have all the information you need at www.nased.org.
