Election Security - Who We Are

Foreign influence and interference in U.S. elections pose significant threats to our democracy. The Intelligence Community (IC) is committed to protecting our democratic processes and institutions from foreign influence and interference. Election security is an enduring challenge and a top priority for the IC.

The Election Threats Executive (ETE) coordinates and integrates all election security activities, initiatives, and programs across the IC and synchronizes intelligence efforts in support of the broader U.S. government. The ETE also chairs the IC’s Election Executive and Leadership Board. Members of this board are senior-executive leads from across the IC and all relevant U.S. government organizations. The board serves as the principal vehicle for IC-wide coordination and focus on election threats.
