Lynn Dice Stewart takes the oath of office from State Judge Tom Yeager on the courthouse steps. She succeeds Joanell Wilson who retired. Stewart has been serving as a deputy registrar.

Her late father, the Reverend B.G. Dice, who also served as a state senator after retirement, ran the office for decades.

This will be a big year to take over. Major statewide and congressional elections are scheduled for October.
