Election Officials Meet at UMD to Discuss Election Integrity
Speaking at the 2024 Elections Summit at UMD on Jan. 30, 2024, U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer, GVPT ’63, stressed the importance of preserving a similar faith in the credibility of elections this presidential election year—and that begins with local election administrators. The issue takes on added urgency almost four years after then-President Donald Trump made unfounded claims of election fraud and pressured a Georgia election official to “find” votes.
The event, hosted by UMD’s Center for Democracy and Civic Engagement (CDCE) and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC), brought together officials from across the country, lawmakers and members of the campus community to discuss serving voters, election security and other challenges.
