Norma Lester, one of two Democratic members of the five-member Shelby County Election Commission, has been appointed by Governor Bill Haslam to fill a vacancy on the state Registry of Election Finance. The board oversees and enforces state election laws.

Lester, a longtime Democratic activist, is a retired nursing administrator.

Her appointment, announced Thursday, fills a position that has been vacant on the six-member board since last year. Lester was one of three names submitted to Haslam by the state Democratic executive committee.

The governor also has the opportunity to name a member to the board from a list submitted by the state Republican executive committee.
