Interim Elections Director
July 11, 2023

July 11, 2023 – Cobb County’s Board of Elections and Registration approved appointing an interim Elections Director Monday and will engage a search firm to conduct a national search for a new director.

Gerry Miller, a veteran of the Cobb County elections department, will come out of retirement to serve as interim director.  Before his retirement in 2021, Miller was the department’s Preparation Center Manager for 11 years.  His 20-year career in elections includes experience as a supervisor and manager with Henry and Fulton counties, as well roles in the private sector.

“We are grateful that Gerry has agreed to come out of retirement to help lead our elections team,” said Board of Elections Director Tori Silas.  “We believe he will provide steady leadership while we work to expand our search for a new Elections Director.”

The board is working to onboard Miller as soon as possible and has started work to identify a search firm to jumpstart a nationwide search for a permanent Elections Director.
