Stephens County loses election supervisor, poll manager

By Rob Moore Reporter

Less than three weeks before the Nov. 8 election, Stephens County has lost its two top elections officials.

Election Supervisor Krista Terry submitted her resignation, and it was effective Tuesday.

Shortly after that, Poll Manager Sheila McClain also resigned.

In a statement, the Stephens County Elections Board confirmed Terry’s departure on Tuesday, citing “the constant harassment that seems to be an unfortunate part of our current political landscape”.

What that harassment was is not specified in the statement.

That statement, from Board Chair Sean Black and bearing the names of the other members, states, “[Terry] has done a phenomenal job in that position. She was energetic, hardworking, and conscientious.”

Other members of the board include Vice Chair Lori McAvoy, Fredda Wheeler, and Mack Poss.

Terry was hired as election supervisor for Stephens County in April, replacing former Election Supervisor April Roberts, who resigned in February.

Roberts had replaced Eureka Gober, who left the position in January 2021.

The statement about Terry’s departure contained nothing but praise for her work.

“It is a loss to the county that she cannot continue as supervisor,” the statement reads. “We hoped that she would stay. Our support for her and the job that she did is unanimous. We wish her well going forward. The County and the Elections Board will ensure that the General Election moves forward.”
