Cheri Poucher, Wake County Board of Elections

— Cherie Poucher said Monday that she will retire this summer after serving as executive director of the Wake County Board of Elections for 24 years.

Poucher's announcement came on the same day the Board of Commissioners honored her for receiving the first-ever Distinguished Service Award from the North Carolina Association of Directors of Elections.

“The population of Wake County more than doubled during Poucher’s exemplary service," said Kim Strach, executive director of the State Board of Elections. "She leaves behind a highly sophisticated elections operation that will continue to serve voters in Wake County. We wish her the very best in retirement.”
