To help the county officials and personnel responsible for holding efficient and secure elections, the Texas Association of Counties will be offering a new educational virtual conference over Oct. 5-6. The two half-day, online classes will be the first program of the new TAC County Elections Academy.

The new academy will not just provide practical support for election officials, said TAC Executive Director Susan M. Redford. "Elections are a core function of county government," she said, "and this academy is another opportunity for the Association to unite counties to achieve better solutions."

Virtual Registration

Once you have registered for the virtual event, a personalized participation link will be emailed to you a few days before the start of the program.

Note: Event confirmation emails will come from Events@Accelevents.com to the email address that was used to register for the event.

How to access the virtual event platform:
Conference attendees will need to access the internet and use a browser to log in and join the virtual event. Almost all internet browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) should allow the event to be accessed, but we've found that it works most smoothly in Google Chrome, because other browsers may experience issues. Internet Explorer is not a supported browser for the event.

Google Chrome is a free download; however, some county information technology departments may require county staff to get approval before downloading new software.

Registration Fees
Virtual County Official or Staff $175

NOTE: Attendance is limited to county officials and staff.
