Election administration personnel changes announced today

Two prominent election administrators today made important announcements.

First, EAC commissioner Ray Martinez agreed to stay on at the Election Assistance Commission, until they could find a replacement. (Press release linked from electionline.org).

Second, Dean Logan, head of elections in King County, announced that he was leaving King County to take up a position in Los Angeles County, the deputy registrar.

While I don’t have any way to quantify this claim, it does seem to me as if we are seeing an increasing number of election administrators leave their profession, and a lot of job mobility by election officials. Would certainly make for an interesting study!
