Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett and State Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins recently recognized Marion County Administrator of Elections Nicole Wileman for passing the Administrator of Elections Certification Exam.

“Congratulations to Nicole Wileman on this achievement,” said Secretary Hargett. “Nicole’s strong desire to meet the highest of standards shows she is committed to effectively serving Marion County.”  Administered by the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections in Nashville, the exam is held at least once yearly. This rigorous written assessment contains questions based on statutory requirements, ranging from voter registration to Election Day guidelines. “Nicole’s hard work and her successful completion of this exam prepare her well to serve,” Goins said. “I appreciate her dedication to ensuring Marion County elections are secure, accurate, and trustworthy.”

Before taking the certification exam, election administrators must complete a training process covering 40 different topics related to election law. By passing the exam, these election administrators demonstrate they have the knowledge and training to successfully administer election laws in their respective communities. Tennessee is currently ranked number one in the nation for election integrity by the Heritage Foundation.

“I would like to extend my gratitude for all the training I received from the Secretary of State’s office,” said Wileman. “I look forward to serving Marion County as we all work together to ensure an accurate election process so that Tennessee maintains its status as a national leader in election integrity.”
