Colorado state election director Judd Choate will be leading a University of Minnesota elections program webinar at 1pm Central time TODAY on the benefits of membership in the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC). Here’s the webinar invitation:
Improving election security at the state and local level requires working with national partners, including The Department of Homeland Security and the EI-ISAC. The Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC) was established to address just these elections cybersecurity needs. Through the EI-ISAC, election administrators gain extraordinary access to elections-focused security information, but this information can be highly technical. This webinar is a practical guide to why you should become a member of the EI-ISAC and how to use EI-ISAC information to protect your elections. Colorado Election Director, Judd Choate, leads a discussion with Ben Spear and Kateri Gill of the EI-ISAC.

Here at UMN, we are excited that Judd has agreed to work with us to build out our coursework in the area of election security – and this webinar is just the latest of what we hope will be many opportunities for him to share his first-rate knowledge, experience, and contacts with the election community. Thanks also to Ben and Kateri for taking the time to participate today – I hope you will take the time to join us!
