General Information

NASED members meet as a body twice annually to share information, hear from pertinent speakers on election issues, and develop a network among those in the elections community.

NASED conferences occur in the winter in Washington, D.C. and in the summer in a member state. NASED is proud and fortunate to maintain extremely positive relationships with both the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and the Election Center. In order to maintain those relationships and to insure the continued sharing of information among members of each organization, NASED meets with NASS in the winter and alternates between NASS, The Election Center, and on its own, for its summer meetings.


Conference Topics

Past conferences have included presentations and discussions with the Election Assistance Commission, FEC, US Department of Justice, Federal Voting Assistance Program, advocates for people with disabilities, and numerous other officials in the elections field.


Non-Member Information

Non-members and vendors are invited to participate in the NASED conferences by using the registration form posted for each conference. All non-members are expected to adhere to the non-members code of conduct.



NASED does not allow vendor sponsorship of any of its activities and all conferences are funded solely by registration fees. NASED allows vendors to place advertisements in the registration packet. Click here for more information.
