Women Who Make Democracy Work

Did you know that nearly 80% of all election officials and administrators across the country are women? From poll workers to county clerks, women significantly outnumber men in this critical civic role. And despite their pivotal work, women on the frontlines of our democracy are often subjected to distinct threats, harassment, and intimidation just for doing their jobs.

In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re bringing together women from our Faces of Democracy campaign to hear about their experiences as election officials and the important role they play in our democracy.

Join us on Monday, March 25, at 3pm ET for “The Women Who Make Democracy Work” — a discussion featuring Faces of Democracy members Maggie Toulouse Oliver (NM Secretary of State), Carly Koppes (Weld County, CO Clerk), and Claire Woodall (Milwaukee, WI Election Commission Executive Director). The conversation will be facilitated by Amber McReynolds, a member of our Faces of Democracy campaign and the National Council on Election Integrity, as well as the former Director of Elections for the City and County of Denver, CO.

Carla Bernal from the Women’s Political Power Program at Pivotal Ventures will be delivering opening remarks.
