Candidate handbook available for those seeking public office

Staff Reports • Dec 17, 2015 at 6:41 PM

The Wilson County Election Commission currently offers a free candidate information handbook to every candidate on the Aug. 7 ballot.  

The handbook is designed as an election and voting information resource for candidates to use as they campaign this summer.

“As we prepare for the August election, we want the candidates to be prepared to answer questions about voting,” said Phillip Warren, administrator of elections. “The handbook is one of many educational and informational resources available to candidates and voters from the Election Commission and our website.”

Warren said the Aug. 7th ballot will be one of the longest ballots in many years. To make the voting experience in Wilson County the best it can be, the Election Commission provides election related educational resources on their website and through community outreach programs. The 2014 Voter Handbook was made available exclusively online to Wilson County voters in January.

“The handbook includes information about registering to vote, what to expect at the polls, information about what voters will need to bring to the polls, absentee voting and the difference between primary and general elections,” said Tammy Smith, assistant administrator of elections. 

Warren said the Wilson County Election Commission staff is available to answer questions and provide information about voter registration, voting or any other election-related issue. For easily accessible election information anytime, visit the Wilson County Election Commission website at wilsonelections.com, go by the office at 203 E. Main St. in Lebanon or call 615-444-0216.
