Richland County, SC (WLTX) - The former direction of Richland County elections has been hired back in a new position.
Lillian McBride has been hired as the Deputy Director of Voter Registration and Absentee Services. She will be paid a salary of $74,300.
Dr. Jasper Salmond, who's serving as the interim elections director, hired McBride Wednesday.
McBride resigned after criticism of her department's performance in the November 6th election. On that day, some voters had to wait as long as seven hours to vote.
