On May 9, 2011 Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced that he has picked Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz to be a member of his newly formed Election Advisory Board.  Moritz will join nine other county auditors to help advise Secretary Schultz regarding election laws and procedures. 

“I am pleased to work with the Office of Secretary of State and other county auditors in advising Secretary Schultz on important issues in election laws and procedures. I hope that our committee can be a bridge of communication and cooperation between the Iowa State Association of County Auditors (ISACA) and Secretary’s Schultz Office. Our common goal must be to ensure fair and transparent elections in the interests of all Iowa voters,” said Auditor Moritz.

The Board is composed of five Democratic and five Republican county auditors, and balanced between rural counties and urban counties, and includes auditors from counties with a large state university versus a small private college.

“I am looking forward to working with such a dynamic group of individuals. This group has seasoned auditors as well as new auditors.  I believe that with the varying backgrounds of these auditors I will have the information I need to propose and support changes in election laws that are efficient, effective and provide the election security Iowans want and deserve,” said Secretary Schultz.
