At this time three years ago, there was some drama surrounding the appointment of the Democratic Commissioner at the Board of Elections. You can remind yourself of it here and here.
This year, a change happened without a hitch. Ken Dow, who was appointed to the position in February 2020, made known his intention not to seek reapppointment, and Erin Stamper, who was already serving as Deputy Commissioner, was the only applicant for the position. On Tuesday, Stamper was sworn in as Democratic Commissioner of Elections by Holly Tanner, County Clerk.
