About the Election Commission
The Election Commission, through the Administrator, is responsible for carrying out the electoral process in accordance with the laws and regulations of the State of Tennessee.  This consists of such things as:

bullet The hiring and training of all election workers.

bullet The purchase of all necessary supplies such as ballots.

bullet The layout of the ballots.

bullet Getting approval on the layout of the ballots from the State of Tennessee.

bullet Programming all of the voting machines.

bullet Tabulating all votes so that each and every vote is counted.

bullet Reporting all election results to the media.

bullet Reporting all election results to the State of Tennessee.

The Commission Office is asked for a wide range of information from local, state and national officials.  At the present time, there are over 13,411 registered voters in Macon County.  The Election Commission probably has the most comprehensive database of the population of Macon County.

Voter registration drives are held each year in both high schools and periodically in other places.  One of our goals is to register as many people in the county as possible.

From time to time, the Administrator is asked to speak to high school classes to explain the workings of the election process in Macon County.  He is also responsible to appear before the County Commission with budgets and any other matters which pertain to the Election Commission.
