Ada County Elections Director David Levine has returned to the Treasure Valley following an assignment from the Organization for Security & Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)/Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODHIR) to help monitor the April 11 president election In Azerbaijan. It was Levine's seventh OSCE/ODIHR election observation mission. Previous assignments included election monitoring in Albania, Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Republic of Macedonia.

“It gives you a real appreciation for just how fortunate we are to live in a country with a fair election process that is widely-respected,” Levine told Boise Weekly before leaving for his Azerbaijan assignment. Upon his return, Levine said, "It was a great experience. It's fascinating to observe and see how elections are conducted in other parts of the world."

Levine joined Ada County as its new Elections Director in September of 2017 after previously helping to manage elections in Richmond, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

His next major task will be the Tuesday, May 15, Idaho primary when high-profile statewide elections will be on the ballot, including the hotly-contested race to see who will be Idaho's next governor.
