The Missoula County Commissioners have officially posted the job opening for a county elections administrator.

The current administrator for the past three years has been Rebecca Connors, but she is moving to Helena, and her last day will be December 15, so a new administrator must now be appointed. Missoula County Chief Administrative Officer Vickie Zeier outlined the qualifications for a new elections chief.

“We will hope for election experience, and we’d like a Public Administration degree,” Zeier began. “They’d need to be able to work with a wide variety of people and different political views, be able to follow the law and have great organizational skills.”

According to the Missoula County website, here are the qualifications for a new elections administrator.

Requires a bachelor’s level degree. Degrees best suited for this position may include business administration or public administration. Requires five years of experience working in business management, public administration, or in any capacity related to the conduct or administration of public elections. Requires at least three years of experience as a supervisor in a customer service setting. An equivalent combination of education and experience may be considered.

The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. November 29.
