The Benton County Election Commission plans to submit a letter to the Finance Committee of the Benton County Quorum Court outlining the commission’s plans for changing the election process. The changes could require more staff and new equipment, which would have to be approved by the Benton County Quorum Court. The Quorum Court’s Finance Committee, acting as the Budget Committee, has completed work on the 2013 budget and is expected to approve the budget at its meeting today. The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. in the Quorum Courtroom at the County Administration Building.
