ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Board of Elections has selected a new state elections administrator who will replace a retiring official who held the post for more than two decades.

The board voted 5-0 on Thursday for Jared DeMarinis. He has served as director of candidacy and campaign finance at the board for 18 years. He will assume the role on Sept. 1, when longtime administrator Linda Lamone has said she is stepping down. The state administrator of elections is the chief election official in Maryland.

The administrator oversees the functions of the state elections board and supervises the operations of local boards of elections.
