What is the Election Commission?
If you've ever voted in a county election then you've been serviced by the Election Commission. From training election poll workers to ordering "I VOTED" stickers, commissioners ensure elections run smoothly and accurately.
The Warren County Election Commission is made up of 5 commissioners representing each of the 5 supervisors' districts. The Election Commission is selected by public vote for a four year term. There is no limitation on the number of consecutive terms. Commissioners must be qualified electors in Warren County and a resident of the Supervisor District in which they are a candidate. They operate under the authority of MS Code Annotated 23-15-211 (1972).
Duties of the Election Commission
The job of each commissioner is to uphold the election law and see that the Warren County General and Special Elections are conducted in an honest and fair manner. Duties include:
- prepare and print ballots
- hire and train poll workers
- secure all supplies and prepare voting machines for elections
- prepare poll books
- compile precinct results on Election Day
- certify election results
- provide election data to the public
- purge voter rolls in compliance with the National Voters Rights Act
- attend election conventions and training workshops.
Primary Elections are overseen by the respective Party Executive Committees, and the Warren County Election Commission is not in charge of these elections.
