Kim Wyman served as Washington’s 15th Secretary of State from 2013 to 2021 and is only the second Republican woman in state history to be elected to statewide office. Kim is President of ESI Consulting, a company specializing in election security and modernization, and she is a Senior Fellow at the Bipartisan Policy Center.

Secretary Wyman’s career in elections began in Thurston County, Washington where she successfully pioneered some of the country’s first vote-by-mail elections and helped lead the state’s transition to universal mail-in elections. She created the first state Elections Security Operations Center, successfully led the bipartisan development of the VoteWA system, and collaborated on many national election administration and cybersecurity initiatives including the Electronic Registration and Information Center (ERIC).

Respected for her leadership, Kim was appointed by Democratic President Joe Biden to serve as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s Senior Election Security Advisor. She served in that capacity for 19 months before moving to the private sector.

Kim Wyman is a frequent panelist and speaker and has been featured in many interviews and reports, including Anderson Cooper, John King, Major Garrett, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, NPR, Time, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Politico, USA Today, and The Hill, among others.
