We value your support now more than ever.

Then you might consider applying to serve as executive director of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics.

The agency has been in the news in a bad way in recent months, for botching vote counts on the night of the District primary in September, then by taking forever to get any results out after the Nov. 4 general election.

The agency’s been under the direction of interim executive director Sylvia Goldsberry-Adams since Alice Miller left the board’s employ last May to take a job at the federal Elections Assistance Commission.

The requirements: “Advanced degree in policy administration and/or law preferred; work experience in governmental organization(s) and election processes; and comprehensive background in election administration, organizational development, administration and supervision. Applicant should possess the ability to communicate effectively in both oral and written forms.”
