Chief Deputy Supervisor of Elections
Mary Hall, MFCEP


browardsoe

My journey with the Broward County Supervisor of Elections began in 1986, which allowed me to learn about the elections processes and to grow with the changes over time.

During my many years of service, I have accumulated an immeasurable wealth of experience in all aspects of the elections processes and operations and have built professional relationships throughout this community and abroad. My commitment to being active and involved in community service and to promoting diversity, safety, and inclusion are my priorities for the agency.

As Chief Deputy Supervisor of Elections, my responsibility is to assist the Supervisor of Elections in achieving the objectives of the organization, which includes providing leadership, management, and vision to ensure proper operational controls, administrative and reporting procedures, and appropriate staff are in place, resulting in operating efficiency. I also administer and implement directives and policy decisions of the Supervisor of Elections and oversee all election operations, reporting directly to the Supervisor of Elections.

You have my word that I will continue ensuring that the integrity of our elections is successful.


Senior Director of Communications & Policy
Consuelo Kelley

I joined the Supervisor of Elections in January 2021 and am responsible for the overall coordination of communications and policy services of the Elections Office at the direction of the Supervisor. My goals are to achieve consistent and informative communications across all print and online media platforms, as well as to facilitate policy objectives of the Supervisor at the local, state, and national levels.

A longtime editor and advocate, my passion for voting rights and voter education began in Puerto Rico, where my mother was president of the first chapter of the League of Women Voters. ... I’m a graduate of Yale University (BA, 1976, English Literature), Yale Law School (JD, 1980), Nova Southeastern University (PhD, 2014, Conflict Analysis & Resolution), a member of the DC Bar Association, and since January 2019 serve as a member of Broward County’s Transportation Surtax Oversight Board. My favorite quote related to serving Broward’s electorate is singer-songwriter John Prine’s observation: “You can be anything you want, you just gotta get the details right.” I’m proud to serve Broward voters alongside every worker in the SOE Office: we are all determined to get the details right.

I am responsible for planning and directing the activities of the Election Day Operations Department, including: polling places, poll workers, and training under the direction of the Supervisor of Elections. ...

My various roles within this organization have afforded me the opportunity to see the electoral process from a few different perspectives.
