Election Advisory Committee

Lynda Roberts, Registrar of Voters, Elections

Statement of Purpose

The Marin County Election Advisory Committee was established by the Registrar of Voters in 2006 to act as a link between the voting public and the Registrar. The committee provides feedback and advice on issues that affect voters, such as voter participation and election integrity, and learns about election processes and laws that impact the procedures of the Elections Department. The committee is interested in helping ensure that every eligible resident of Marin County has the opportunity to vote, and that all valid ballots are counted accurately and securely.

The committee is advisory only and has no rulemaking authority. The Registrar of Voters may designate subcommittees as needed to address specific topics.


The Registrar of Voters selects up to 20 members who are from various geographic areas of the County and who have different points of view and interests in the elections process. Members of the Committee must be residents of Marin County. However, residents from outside the County may be selected if they serve in a unique capacity within Marin County that benefits Marin County voters.

Members will be added when necessary in order to provide the widest possible representation from every part of the County and promote diversity. Members must be willing to attend most of the meetings of the committee.


Advisory Committee meetings are generally held from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., on the third Friday of each month with some exceptions. The meeting schedule is posted below. For more information about the Election Advisory Committee or for information about attending meetings, email Lynda Roberts, Registrar of Voters or call (415) 473-6456.
