Former South Dakota first lady Pat Miller will become deputy secretary of state.
Secretary of State Jason Gant says he hired Miller as his deputy because she has extensive experience as an administrator in business and state government.
Miller is married to former Gov. Walter Dale Miller, who was governor from 1993 until 1995.
She is president of the South Dakota Historical Foundation and previously was chief executive officer of Easter Seals of South Dakota.
Miller will start work as deputy secretary of state on Sept. 4. The secretary of state's office supervises elections, handles registration of corporations and keeps official state documents.
