Electoral Board Of Craig County
The Electoral Board is made up of three members who serve three-year staggered terms. Two members are members of the political party of the most recently elected governor. The chair and secretary must represent different political parties unless the position is declined. Although the bipartisan board is appointed by the Circuit Court based upon local party recommendations, each member must carry out official duties in a nonpartisan manner. The authority for the administration of all aspects of elections for the locality remains with the Electoral Board, including oversight of the General Registrar/Director of Elections, and is responsible to the State Board of Elections for that administration. It employs and supervises the General Registrar, who handles voter records.
Electoral Board Chair: Elaine Christian
Electoral Board Secretary: Phyllis Sizer
Electoral Board Third Member: Vacant
