Swift County voters to decide future of auditor and recorder positions


BENSON -- Swift County voters will decide Tuesday whether the county auditor and recorder should remain elected offices or be appointed positions hired by the County Board.

There are two separate questions on the ballot in Swift County that seek voters' approval to appoint, rather than elect, the auditor and recorder.

State law allows counties to make the change if voters approve the measure, or if the Legislature approves special legislation.
