The Election Commissioners are appointed by the State Election Commission upon the recommendation of the local representative (TN Senator or Representative) and the local parties. The Election Commissioners, in turn, appoint the local Administrator of Elections.
The Election Commission Office serves the voting public and candidates in all things pertaining to an election: Local, State and Federal. The Election Commission Office is responsible for filing and maintaining all voter registration records for Hamblen County and Morristown.
The Election Commission meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 4:00pm in the Election Commission Office at the Hamblen County Courthouse. Election Commission meeting minutes are available through the Administrator of Elections upon request.
