Dennis Stanley, the Administrator of Elections in DeKalb County, has been elected to a leadership role in the Tennessee Association of County Election officials(TACEO).
Stanley was recently elected Middle Tennessee Vice President of the organization, which consists of election administrators and election commission members in all of the state's 95 counties. As a regional V.P., Stanley will also serve on the statewide executive committee.
“I am honored to be named to such an important position within the association," Stanley said. “It should be the goal of every election official to work toward improving the electoral process and this position gives me another opportunity beyond the county level to do that.”
Stanley has been a member of the TACEO legislative committee the past two years and has worked closely with state lawmakers in the passage of new and amended election laws designed to protect the integrity of the ballot while making elections more cost efficient.
The purpose of the Tennessee Association of County Election Officials is to provide an educational forum for the exchange of ideas relative to the administration of elections and to offer an opportunity for members to suggest and participate in the implementation of improvements in or to election law.
