GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - A Grand Island woman has been named Hall County’s new Deputy Election Commissioner.

Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet made the announcement Wednesday, naming Becky Rosenlund as the person taking on the job.

”I am very excited to have Becky join the election team on a full-time basis,” Overstreet said. “She is passionate about elections and already familiar with Hall County elections having worked at the Peace Lutheran Church polling site and managed the Third City Christian Church polling site in 2020 and 2022.”

Rosenlund is also well connected in the community. She serves on the Grand Island Area Habitat for Humanity Faith Relations committee, is active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has served on the Grand Island Public Schools Parent Advisory Council, Shoemaker Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, Edith Abbott Memorial Library Board, various Boy Scouts of America committees and is completing her service to the Northwest Public School Board as an advisory board member.

Overstreet said Rosenlund’s teaching and proofreading skills will be well-utilized in the election process. Rosenlund has taught English as a Second Language classes and has worked most recently as a substitute teacher for Grand Island Public Schools. She has 14 years of experience as a legal deposition transcript editor.

”Beyond her unique skill sets, Becky also has a lifetime of exposure to elections as the daughter of a state senator in Idaho and she has hands on experience with get-out-the-vote campaigns,” Overstreet said. “Her face lights up when she talks about elections.”

Rosenlund has a Bachelor’s Degree in Linguistics from Brigham Young University and is currently working on a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Nebraska Omaha. Rosenlund and her husband, Jon, live in Grand Island and have five children.

She is excited to start her duties on August 29. She will work with Overstreet and Election Assistant Robyn Mays.

”Based on my experiences as a voter, and more recently, as a poll worker in Hall County, I have a high level of confidence in the integrity of our local election process,” Rosenlund said. “I am so grateful for the right to vote and have always loved participating in elections. I believe that free, fair, and secure elections are essential to preserving our liberty and way of life.  I am looking forward to contributing to this important effort in our community.”
