Welcome to the Elections Office of Desoto County
The Supervisor of Elections is an elected constitutional office whose responsibility is to prepare conduct all county, state, and federal elections. The office registers all county voters and is responsible for accurately maintaining all records of approximately 16,000 registered electors. The Supervisor of Elections qualifies all county candidates and monitors all financial reports due from candidates. In addition, this office handles all filings of financial disclosure forms by appointed and elected officials, which are deemed by the ethics commission to be eligible to file such forms. Other services include appointment and training of all poll workers, obtaining suitable polling locations, and acquisition and maintenance of all voting equipment. Our budget also includes the direct cost of conducting the various elections. Every odd numbered year, we are required by law to perform a list maintenance program of all inactive voters.
The election year of 2000 was a challenge to many, but as the Supervisor of Elections in DeSoto County, my staff and I look forward to serving DeSoto County in the years ahead.
