Yesterday, we talked about what a county commissioner does. The other big question is: what is the Commissioner Board’s duty to election security? I believe the County Board is accountable to ensure the Elections Manager and Elections department are following all applicable laws and best practices pertaining to the administration of an election. This includes election planning, public information and education, recruitment and training of election judges, ballot printing and distribution, voting procedures, absentee ballots, vote counting procedures, reporting, canvassing the election results, and ensuring the safety and integrity of the election. I am a supporter of our current system: paper ballots with optical scanning. Where improvements can be identified, they should be enacted.
