Election Assurance Icon plus black
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented influence on the operations of State and Local Governments and the impact on 2020 elections will be no different. Elections Officials are adapting today to potential changes in the future mechanisms of voting and are preparing their jurisdictions to adequately support and manage the changes to maintain a secure election.

As we learned in the 2016 general and 2018 mid-term elections, periods of uncertainty and crisis are a dream come true for adversaries, both foreign and domestic. COVID-19, political and civil unrest, and an uncertain economic outlook will be exploited by bad actors who seek to spread disinformation, disenfranchise voters, and damage citizens' confidence in our democracy. This challenging environment requires whole of government and whole of industry efforts to ensure a successful election by adjusting to COVID conditions, minimizing fraud, maximizing voter engagement, and protecting against external interference. There are five key areas for states to focus on and leverage in order to uphold a successful election: Strategic Communications, Financial Management, Cybersecurity, Organizational Transformation, Fraud Risk.
