Tammy Patrick


Tammy Patrick is a senior advisor to the Elections program at the Democracy Fund Voice, a bipartisan foundation working to ensure that our political system is able to withstand new challenges. She helps lead the Democracy Fund Voice's efforts to foster a voter-centric elections system and work to provide election officials across the country with the tools and knowledge they need to best serve voters.

In May 2013, Patrick was selected by President Obama to serve as a commissioner on the Presidential Commission on Election Administration (PCEA), which led to a position at the Bipartisan Policy Center to further the work of the PCEA. Previously, she was the federal compliance officer for the Maricopa County, Ariz., Elections Department for 11 years, tasked with serving more than 1.9 million registered voters in the greater Phoenix Valley.
