“As someone who prefers to rely on evidence and expertise – as opposed to partisanship and spin – in shaping the laws and procedures affecting next generation of election administrators, I have come to count on EVN and its members for an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the technical issues confronting the profession today. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t learn something important from the discussions on the EVN list, and the annual conferences are a powerful reminder of the value of unbiased yet deeply passionate commitment to a healthy democracy.”
