Running elections may sound easy (they're only every two years, right?), but the Missoula Board of County Commissioners recently decided it should be a full-time appointed position, after a three-year trial run showed there was more than enough work to warrant the job.
"We are at a point in our history where we must have someone dedicated full time to the task of managing and administering elections," Commissioner Dave Strohmaier said in a news release. "Elections are just too complex in our large county, and the public, rightfully, has a high expectation of competency in this role."
