New Cascade County elections officer fields questions at heated meeting

An estimated 150 people packed the Family Living Center on Friday for the Cascade County elections officer’s presentation on how the upcoming local elections were going to be conducted in a meeting that featured some heated exchanges and continued questions around cost. Community members and department heads piled into the standing-room only space and more than 100 tuned via Zoom to seek answers about how new Clerk and Recorder Sandra Merchant would hold five upcoming local elections. The questions arose after Merchant sent emails to the school districts in March saying the planned mail-in ballot election would not be possible and requesting the Great Falls Public Library postpone its election to September.
