HOUSTON – Five months before the next big election, Harris County has selected a new Elections Administrator.

After an extended Election Commission Meeting and interviewing two final candidates, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo was set to announce Tuesday evening that Clifford Tatum is being brought in to fill the important role.

Tatum most recently has served as principal and operator of a company called ECLS which stands for Elections-Cyber Security-Legal-Services. ELCS is focused on elections consulting and legal advice.

His resume includes multiple high-profile positions in the public sector, including serving as General Counsel for the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from December 2015 to October 2019.

Tuesday’s announcement comes four months after the resignation of the previous elections administrator, Isabel Longoria.

Longoria resigned shortly after the March 1 Primary Elections when 10,000 mail-in ballots were found uncounted. Longoria blamed Senate Bill 1, claiming the bill was “a direct result” of Harris County’s innovative processes, such as 24-hour and drive-thru voting during the 2020 General Election.

Her resignation went into effect on Friday, July 1, which allowed the county election committee enough time to find a replacement officer to oversee the November election.

According to Tatum’s biography on the Election Assistance Commission website and his LinkedIn profile, Tatum has also held the following roles:
