Tallahassee, FL - The Leon County Supervisor of Elections is retiring.
Mark Early has filed to run for the Leon County Supervisor of Elections in 2016.
Early works in the elections office. He is currently the manager of voting systems of Leon County. He's the programmer for ballots and voting machines.
Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho is endorsing Early. He says Early is the one who ensures that everybody's vote has counted properly over the last 20 years.
Sancho says, "The technology required to manage a modern-day elections office is incredible. Quite frankly, Somebody with an engineering degree, somebody with experience and understanding to know when a vendor is filling them with hot air and when a vendor is telling the truth is necessary."
Early is the only person at this point who has officially filed. Others are expected to file.
Ion Sancho has been the supervisor of elections for Leon County for 27 years.
