Meet the Supervisor

Ion Sancho is the Supervisor of Elections for Leon County, Florida.  Serving since January 1989, he has been reelected to six additional terms.  One of only three (out of 67) supervisors of elections in Florida without party affiliation, Mr. Sancho has devoted special attention to studying voting technologies and increasing citizen participation in our electoral system.  Under his administration Leon County's voter turnout percentage has consistently ranked among the highest of Florida's 67 counties, with a record setting 86% turnout in the November 2008 General Election.

Mr. Sancho was appointed by the Florida Supreme Court in December of 2000 as the technical expert to oversee the Florida Recount effort and was recognized by the Leon County Board of County Commissioners for providing "statistically the cleanest county elections in the state" during that infamous election.  In 2005, Mr. Sancho sanctioned the first tests of voting machines by voting integrity experts, independent of the vendors.  His actions were captured in the 2007 Emmy nominated film, "Hacking Democracy."

Ion Sancho was the first Florida election official to attain national certification in 1996 (Certified Elections Registration Official, the Election Center).  He is regularly interviewed by national and local media and has presented testimony before the United States Congress, the United States Election Assistance Committee, and the United States Civil Rights Commission.  In 1998, he co-authored the first national Principles and Standards of Conduct of Elections/Registrations Officials.  In 2008, the Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office received the National Freedom Award for outstanding innovations in the field of elections.

Mr. Sancho's credentials include: J.D. Florida State University Law School, 1987: B.A. Social Science, Stetson University, 1978; A.A. Valencia Community College, 1973; State Certified Supervisor Of Elections; Nationally certified by the Elections Center as a Certified Elections/Registration Administrator (CERA); Former staff member, Florida House of Representatives, Corrections, Probation & Parole Committee; Member, The Elections Center.
