NASHVILLE (AP) – The National Association of Secretaries of State has elected Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett as its new president.

According to a news release from the association, Hargett most recently served as the group's treasurer.

He has been Tennessee's secretary of state since 2009. Prior to that, he was a member of the Tennessee General Assembly for 10 years and later the chairman of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority.

Hargett said in a news release that citizens are counting on the national group to lead the way in developing best practices for running honest and efficient elections, increasing voter turnout and civic awareness, and protecting people and businesses from unnecessary federal laws and regulations.
