Circuit Clerk Joe Martin with Election Commissioners (not pictured: Robert Williams)
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 Election Commission is selected by public vote for a four year term. There is no limitation on the number of consecutive terms and they are paid $84 per meeting. Commissioners must be qualified electors in Jackson County and a resident of Supervisor District in which they are a candidate. They operate under the authority of MS Code Annotated 23-15-211 (1972).
