We Did It! Another Successful Election!

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your service on Election Day. You made it a tremendous success and it wouldn’t have been possible without you. We gave you a lot of new things this election – from a new portal to new equipment – and your effort, patience and understanding on every front made a huge difference.

We also want to commend you for your diligence in combing through the rosters to locate every eligible voter possible. Your efforts reduced the number of provisional ballots. We had to review and process just over 11,000, down from 32,000 in November 2016.

You embraced accessibility with your participation in the APPLE training and we heard wonderful feedback from you about applying what you learned to make your polling place and the voting experience more accessible. Many of you attended a Practice Makes Perfect equipment session. You were able to get your polling places open on time and running smoothly. There were fewer calls to the Command Center on Election Day than in years past.

In the evening, the depots were able to close in a timely manner with the last of the depot trucks back at the elections
warehouse by midnight.

Thank you so much for your commitment to voters and the democratic process.
