Brian Corley, Pasco County’s Supervisor of Elections and the current president of the Florida State Association of Supervisor of Elections, is going to Washington — but just for a day.

Corley will participate in the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) roundtable “Preparing for the 2016 Election Cycle in Battleground Jurisdictions: Best Practices and Lessons Learned” this Wednesday.

“To be identified as someone with expertise and valuable input is an honor,” Corley said in a statement. “I look forward to representing Florida and my fellow Supervisors on this very important panel with such distinguished election administrators.”

The roundtable will explore how battleground jurisdictions like Florida are preparing for the special challenges of the upcoming presidential election cycle by identifying concerns, risks, mitigation strategies, and best practices.

Florida’s presidential primary election takes place on March 15. The deadline to register to vote in that election is February 16.

Corley has been Pasco’s SOE since 2007. He said last fall he will seek re-election in November.
