Marion County Supervisor of Elections - Wesley Wilcox

Vote in Honor of a Veteran

Program Information

The Marion County Supervisor of Elections is pleased to provide our voters with the Vote in Honor of a Veteran program. This program was established to encourage voter participation and remind citizens about the countless sacrifices Marion County veterans have made. Marion County has a legacy of military service and is considered home to over 35,000 veterans. These brave men and women fought and died to protect our freedoms that are often taken for granted, including the right to vote. Our democracy is possible thanks to the service and sacrifice of our veterans and active duty service members. By exercising our right to vote, we show them the respect they deserve for protecting our freedoms. The next time you vote, vote in honor of a veteran.
