Assistant state elections director Shane Hamlin has been honored nationally as one of the country’s top 25 “Doers, Dreamers & Drivers” for his voter-registration efforts. The Office of the Secretary of State announced the citation last week in a blog post.
The post says the award was made by e.Republic’s Government Technology magazine and the Center for Digital Government:
Hamlin, who is board chairman of a national voter registration data project, was honored for his work in implementing a new way for Washington voters to register or make changes to their voter registration via Facebook and an online service called MyVote.”
Hamlin is a former legislative staffer who worked on elections issues before joining the state elections office under former secretary of state Sam Reed, for whom he worked as state co-director of elections.
