Experienced Ohio election official joins The Elections Group

Burr Ridge, Ill. (September 11, 2023) – The Elections Group is growing its team with the addition of longtime Ohio election official and election expert Matthew Tlachac.

Tlachac has 17 years of experience in election administration, most recently serving as the interim director of elections for the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office.

“We are excited to welcome Matthew to our team,” said Jennifer Morrell, the chief executive officer and co-founder of The Elections Group. “As we continue to grow and support election officials across the country, Matthew’s skills and election experience at both the state and local level will be invaluable.”

In addition to serving as interim director of elections, Tlachac held a variety of other positions throughout his tenure with the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office, including elections administrator and deputy elections administrator. Tlachac is an expert in voting technology and cybersecurity, notably serving as the administrator to the Ohio Board of Voting Machine Examiners, a certification board that examines and approves voting equipment for use across the state. He served as an integral team member for the implementation of several cybersecurity programs and developed numerous resources for local election officials to improve auditing and reconciliation processes and procedures.

Prior to joining the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office, Tlachac served as the director for the Clark County Board of Elections and deputy director for the Madison County Board of Elections. Across these two positions, he oversaw website redesigns, championed youth poll worker recruitment efforts, and implemented a new electronic pollbook system and training curriculum.

In his new role Tlachac will join The Elections Group’s team of election experts who provide solutions-based support to state and local election officials across the United States.
