The Madison County Supervisor of Elections started participating in the Vote in Honor of a Veteran program one year ago and started adding pictures of veterans to the Wall of Honor. There are currently 55 veterans featured on the Wall of Honor but Madison County Supervisor of Elections Tommy Hardee would love to cover all the wall space available with veterans. To participate, Madison County residents may bring a picture of a family member who served or are currently serving to add to the Wall of Honor. The original photo will not be kept; a copy will be made. There is a small form to fill out with information about the veteran such as name, branch of service, years served, rank and medals/honors received. “The purpose behind it is when people come in they can see these people who helped fight for their right to vote and to show appreciation to the veterans,” said Hardee. If a resident wants to Vote in Honor of a Veteran but does not have pictures to add to the Wall of Honor they can just go to the Supervisor of Elections Office and will receive a pin to wear when they vote. For more information, contact the Madison County Supervisor of Elections at (850) 973-6507. The office is located at 239 SW Pinckney Street in Madison.
