Marion County Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox was inducted into the Election Center Hall of Fame on Aug. 28 at a national election conference in Orlando.

Wilcox is currently serving his third term as supervisor in Marion County and has more than 32 years of experience in the election field. Wilcox is a nationally certified elections/registration administrator (CERA), according to a press release from the Supervisor of Elections office.

“Thank you to the voters of Marion County for the unwavering support and confidence you have placed in your Marion County Elections team,” Wilcox said in the press release. “We do not take it for granted and work tirelessly to be worthy of the trust you have placed in us.”

To be nominated for the hall of fame, one must have served in the election profession for at least 10 years, participated not only in their community but statewide elections, worked for at least one election organization at the national level, led an organization, earned respect and trust from peers and furthered the profession through one’s conduct and actions.

“I am truly humbled and honored to be a recipient of the prestigious Election Center Hall of Fame award,” Wilcox said.
