The Election Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The Election Center’s purpose is to promote, preserve, and improve democracy. The Center is also known as the National Association of Election Officials. As the election profession's premier organization for training and certification of election and voter registration administrators, The Center also conducts annual conferences and several regional workshops and seminars throughout each year which are designed specifically for government elections units. Each of these programs is designed to improve the methods of operation and efficiency of the affected offices. The result is improved service to voters, the public, the taxpayers, and government. The Center trains between 800 and 1,200 election and voter registration administrators every year.
The Election Center is the principal focus for the U.S. Congress, Federal agencies, and state governments related to the elections and voter registration issues. In 1997, Executive Director Doug Lewis established the National Task Force on Voting Accessibility with the elections community and the disability community working together on voting accessibility issues.
