Olivia Chapman has been hired as the new Bryan County Elections Supervisor to oversee local, state, and federal elections within the county. 

Chapman comes from Effingham County, where she served as Elections and Registration Director since 2014. Bryan County’s voter population is smaller than Effingham County’s by about 20,000 voters, but that difference in size will shrink quickly in the coming years.

 Chapman said she took the Bryan County position because, “I was looking for a change of scenery and decided to come to Bryan County. I am definitely glad I did. I look forward to using my experience and skills to provide irreproachable Elections for Bryan County, instilling confidence in the Dominion Voting System and making sure each voters vote is counted accurately.”

 According to the county, Chapman has already made several positive changes by creating a standard operating procedure book for the department and creating an organization and storage plan. These changes are important steps in organizing the department in the way that is most efficient for her leadership style. 

She also serves on the Georgia Association of Voter Registration and Elections Officials (GAVREO) subcommittee focusing on how to help the Association relay useful information regarding the voting equipment to local Elections Officials across the state.

 Chapman began in the position on April 20, 2023, upon the retirement of former Elections Supervisor Cindy Reynolds.

 The next election is on November 7, 2023 with municipal positions and SPLOST continuance on the ballot.
