The Bloomington Election Commission has named a new executive director as early voting is set to begin soon.

Luke Stremlau comes to the commission from Keplr Vision in Bloomington. The commission says his background includes customer service, management and pharmacy. He earned an associate's degree from Heartland Community College.

Stremlau replaces Suzanne Fahnestock, who resigned in July after only 10 months on the job. Stremlau becomes the commission’s fourth full-time director in three years, following the retirement of longtime director Paul Shannon.

Early voting for the November election begins Sept. 29.
