Fairfax General Registrar Appointed to National Task Force on Education and Training
Jackie C. Harris, Fairfax County general registrar, was appointed to a task force on education and training, sponsored by the Election Center of the National Association of Election Officials in Houston. The center helps election administrators in the areas of staff and poll worker training, as well as voter and news media education.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to add to the national dialogue on the importance of professional elections administrators,” said Harris.
The task force will meet into early 2008. Its mission is “striving to pioneer and explore innovative and creative learning techniques for the men and women who serve or are associated with the elections business.”
Harris was appointed general registrar of Fairfax County in 2005 and previously served as general registrar of Albemarle County, Va. She has more than 15 years of experience in administering elections.
