Selma Suiter was recognized at the July 6 Davie Board of Elections meeting for nearly two decades of service on the Davie County Board of Elections.

Her family, current and past board members, and staff celebrated her dedication to the board. She was presented with a letter of appreciation from Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the N.C. State Board of Elections.

Suiter joined the board in July 2003 as the first woman appointed.  Elections have changed considerably during her tenure including voter ID changes, replacement of voting equipment, designation as critical infrastructure, adjustments to early voting and advancements in election administration.
