Richland County Approves New Elections Director
RICHLAND COUNTY, S.C. (WOLO) - Richland County has found a new director to lead its Elections and Voter Registration Office.
A search committee voted to approve Howard Jackson's application for that position Wednesday evening.
He's now in a *probationary period*.
Jackson will replace former director - Lillian McBride - who stepped down following a firestorm of criticism after last November's so-called Election Day debacle.
He is no stranger to the elections process, having worked at the Orangeburg County office.
Jackson's official starting date will be determined at a later time.
