Corning, Iowa- The Iowa State Association of County Auditors (ISACA) announced it was recognized for excellence in election administration with a national Clearinghouse Award for Outstanding Election Official State Association Program. The announcement came just days ahead of the 2024 Primary Election on June 4th. 

Also known as the "Clearies," the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) presents the awards program annually to celebrate the hard work for election offices across the country. The Clearie Awards is now in its eighth year.

ISACA's State Election Administration Training (SEAT) program was one of 32 programs that were recognized with a Clearie Award. SEAT provides election training at three different levels for election administrators throughout the State of Iowa. 

"It's an incredible honor for our organization's program to be recognized by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission," said ISACA President Rebecca Bissell. "The SEAT program is vital to those who work in County Auditor Offices across Iowa to administer our elections in the fair, free and accessible manner our voters are accustomed to."

The Clearies play an essential role in fulfilling the EAC's mission to serve as a clearinghouse for election administration information under the Help America Vote Act. The EAC is an independent, bipartisan federal agency solely focused on election administration. Submissions were judged on innovation, sustainability, outreach, cost-effectiveness, replicability and the generation of positive results.
