SALT LAKE CITY — Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox has announced Mark Mitchell will serve as his office’s director of technology, coordinating with county election officials and overseeing state elections technology.
He will also oversee office IT systems and programming, and act as the liaison between the lieutenant governor's office and the department of technology. Mitchell has served as IT manager for the governor's office since 2009.
In addition, Katy Owens Hubler will oversee the Voting Equipment Selection Committee in its duties to evaluate and recommend voting equipment. She is known nationally for her extensive policy experience, having served as senior policy specialist for the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Jennifer Storie, currently a special assistant to Cox, has been named notary public administrator for Utah. Storie will oversee Utah's 20,000 notaries and the document authentication process. For the past four years, Storie has overseen the redesign and implementation of the notary.utah.gov website.
"My staff consists of just a few dedicated people," Cox said in a statement. "With significant changes to Utah's election laws and more than 1.5 million voters in the state, I am confident that these talented individuals will be instrumental in our efforts moving forward."
