“Congratulations to Sherry Anderson on this achievement,” said Secretary Hargett. “Sherry’s strong desire to meet the highest of standards shows she is committed to effectively serving White County.”

 Administered by the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections in Nashville, the exam is held at least once yearly. This rigorous written assessment contains questions based on statutory requirements, ranging from voter registration to Election Day guidelines.
