Two local women were among the 66 new members to the Board of Registrars in 2015.

Tina Ward and Edna Johnson, along with Mike Watson, make up the three-member Escambia County Board of Registrars.

The Board of Registrars manages the registration of voters and maintenance of all voter registration records for each county. At the conclusion of the voter registration period, prior to each election, the Board certifies the list of eligible voters used to identify voters at each precinct. At the conclusion of each election, the voter lists are returned to the Board where each voter’s participation becomes part of his or her voting history. The Board also makes determinations on all provisional ballots cast on Election Day.
