Election supervisors from both parties rose up in opposition last month to a plan by state officials to draw up a list.

The rankings would have been based on criteria that included how quickly counties reported election results and when those counties set up early voting sites.

A spokesman for the Department of State said Friday that the state will not publish the first list of rankings.

Chris Cate said the state will work with county officials to draw up a new set of measures that can be used to judge the performance of election supervisors.

Cate could not say exactly when the new survey or rankings would be developed.
