Meet the Elections Administrator

Hello Wood County Voters,

My name is Laura Wise. I live in Hawkins, TX with my husband and best friend John Wise, Sr. Together we have 6 children, 4 Daughters in Law, 1 Son in Law,  and 8 grandchildren now!! My downtime is spent with family. We enjoy traveling with our new 5th wheel, finding new places and meeting new people.  My grandbabies are my joy! Nothing is greater than their giggles or to hear them say, “Ammaw, I love you more than all the Skittles!”

In May 2011, I joined the Wood County elections staff as Assistant Elections Administrator. My biggest responsibility at that time was Voter Registration. In August of 2015, I had the opportunity to accept the Elections Administrator position. I  have a wonderful assistant,  Rachel Pearson and we have one part time position. Our goals in the Elections Office are to insure safe, secure and smooth elections , to provide reliable and trusted election information, and to provide excellent customer service to our citizens for whom we are honored to work. We have the best election judges and clerks, and we could not do our jobs without each and every one of them. It has been an honor to serve as your Wood County Elections Administrator and I am excited to see what the next year brings.

Please feel free to stop by our office at 200 W. Bermuda Quitman, TX 75783 or call us at (903)763-2400.

Laura Wise, EA
