Randolph County Clerk Laura Martin was named State Election Administrator of the Year Award by Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson.
Lawson said she selected Martin because of her dedication, leadership, and involvement with the local election process.
As County Clerk, Martin administers all local elections. During her tenure, she has served as President of the Indiana Clerks Association, and works tirelessly to ensure safe and efficient elections for all voters, Lawson said. Her peers have found her accessible, resourceful, and wholly committed to her office.
“It is a real honor to get this award,” Martin said. “I was very surprised when the co-director of the Indiana Election Division announced my name.
“I don’t think people realize how much work goes into elections behind the scenes.”
Martin is completing her sixth year as county clerk. She has been working in the clerk’s office, assisting with elections for a total 11 years.
“Laura’s dedication and involvement in her community sets her apart from others, which is why I have chosen her for this award,” Lawson said. “Her willingness to put in so many hours on behalf of Randolph County makes her a great asset to her community and our state. Laura’s integrity and friendliness is a model to all those who serve in elected office, and we are fortunate to have public servants of Laura’s caliber working on behalf of Hoosiers.”
Martin received the award at the annual Indiana Election Administrators Conference in Indianapolis, December 11, 2018.
