Welcome to your Supervisor of Elections Website...


We are so thankful to see another year arrive and we look forward to 2021 and the hope that life will return to some type of normalcy.

It seems here lately that after each election cycle we proclaim that another historical election year has ended and the 2020 Election Cycle proved to be no different.  

While conducting three elections during 2020 in the middle of a national pandemic was not easy, we set high goals, created safety protocols and continued to encourage every voter to cast a ballot to ensure their voice was heard.

We saw record number of mail ballots cast, record number of voters voting early and maintained our fourteen precincts without any burden or confusion upon the voters who wanted to vote in person on election day. A historical turnout for this presidential election cycle sealed the finale without any noted incidents or issues.

2020 was a successful election cycle thanks to my staff, our team of poll workers, other election team members and each of you. It takes all of us working together in Taylor County to achieve the success, honesty and integrity that we all can be proud of.  

Over the last twelve years I have worked diligently to bring you secure, accurate, and easily accessible elections. Change has been slow and steady and I look forward to leading the voters and the community through more positive changes as we continue to move forward with improvements in your elections office. 2022 will be here before we know it and your elections office is already building the foundation for another successful election, because we know that is what you expect of us and it’s what we expect of ourselves.

As your Supervisor of Elections, I would like to say thank you for allowing me to serve another 4-year term. I am deeply humbled by the responsibility you have entrusted in me. Even though there will never be a perfect election, it is my goal to strive for error-free elections and to ensure the integrity of the electoral process. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have a question, comment, or complaint regarding your voter registration or voting experience. My office is located at 433 U S 19 N, Perry and my door is always open. Please feel free to call, email or stop by any time.

With kind regards,
Dana Southerland
Supervisor of Elections
