Lebanon, TN – Phillip Warren, Wilson County Administrator of Elections, was elected President of the Tennessee Association of County Election Officials at their annual conference and State Law Seminar.

Warren was elected by the TACEO membership to serve a two year term as President of the association. He had served two terms as regional Vice-President. Also elected for two year terms were the association’s Treasurer, Secretary and two Vice-Presidents from each of the three grand divisions. “Having been actively involved in the association, I look forward to the opportunity to work with and represent election officials from all over Tennessee,” said Warren.

The Tennessee Association of County Election Officials (TACEO) is made up of county election commissioners, administrators of elections and election staff from all 95 Tennessee counties. The purpose of TACEO 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 to election law.

Each year the membership comes together in Nashville for their annual meeting. In conjunction with the TACEO meeting, the annual Tennessee State Law Seminar is conducted by State Coordinator of Elections, Mark Goins. Election registration and administration are governed by state and federal law. Recently enacted legislation and current procedures related to elections and other timely election administration topics were presented and discussed at the event. Participation at the annual State Election Law Seminar provides the training necessary for election officials to continue administering the best elections possible for the voters of their counties.
Mark Goins, Tennessee Coordinator of Elections said, “I appreciate Phillip Warren volunteering his time to serve as President of TACEO. Phillip has shown by his hard work for the voters of Wilson County that he is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work to improve the election process. I know he will do the same for TACEO.”
