Richland County Approves New Elections Director


By News Department

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.
