New Elections Director
October 9, 2023

October 9, 2023 - The Cobb Board of Elections and Registration has hired a new Elections Director to take over the county’s elections operations.  Tate Fall will start in early December.

Fall is currently the Deputy Director of Elections for Arlington County, Virginia.  She also worked for the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and graduated from Auburn University with a master’s degree in Public Administration with a certificate in Election Administration.

Fall said she was looking forward to moving back south and is eager to take on this challenging job.  “I am honored for the opportunity and look forward to serving the citizens of Cobb County,” she said shortly after the board’s vote.

Board of Elections and Registration Chairwoman Tori Silas says the board was impressed by Fall’s enthusiasm.

“It was difficult to find someone with the level of experience needed along with the zeal for this job,” Silas said. “We believe we have found the right person at the right time.”

Fall will start December 4th. She will take over from Gerry Miller, who agreed earlier this year to come out of retirement to lead the department until a permanent replacement could be found.
