Registered Democrat????? WHY???? Can't a registered Republican or Independant who is qualified do the job. Sounds like discrimination to me.

I believe the reasoning is because the person who left was a Democrat and that is significant because these are elected positions. I'm not 100 percent on that though. I will ask the Registrar of Voters' Office on Monday when they are open.

The person's political affiliation should have no bearing on this
