The board of supervisors of any county may establish the office of director of finance.

(a) The board of supervisors shall submit to the electors of the county the question of whether the office of director of finance shall be established. If a majority of the voters voting on the question at that election favor the establishment of the office, the board of supervisors shall, by ordinance, create the office.

(b) The board of supervisors at that election may also submit to the voters the question of whether the office, if so established, shall be elective, or appointed by the board of supervisors. If a majority of the voters voting on the question favor making the office elective, the board of supervisors shall, in the ordinance creating the office, make it an elective one.

(c) Any person may be appointed by the board of supervisors, or be a candidate for election, to the office of director of finance, consolidated from other offices pursuant to this chapter, if he or she meets the qualifications set forth in Section 26945 or Section 27000.7.
