Letter to the Editor: 135,000 Lorain County Votes Cast: 'Thank You'
Board of Elections' directors say thank you to precinct workers, voters.
I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln
Our community owes a huge debt of thanks to our dedicated and professional Precinct Election Officials. We are so very proud of those in our community who stepped up and offered their assistance and served Lorain County voters at the polls earlier this month.
On Election Day, over 135,000 votes were cast in our county. In order for that to happen, over 1,100 Precinct Election Officials agreed to work from 5:30 a.m. until all of the voters in line had cast their ballot on Nov. 6. Many workers ended up working over 15 hours, to help others exercise their right to vote. They were from every economic background, every ethnicity, and from every corner of our great county. They all deserve our thanks and gratitude.
The poll workers that greeted you on Election Day work primarily for the satisfaction of knowing that democracy can only happen when those among us that are able make a conscious decision to help. The day of the election was exciting for all of us. But, this was only possible because we have such a great array of excellent Precinct Election Officials that competently insure every voter is processed fairly and professionally.
So, on behalf of the Lorain County Board of Elections, we would like to say thank you to everyone involved with the election process this year. Thank you to the Precinct Election Officials, thank you to the dedicated staff of the Board of Elections, and thank you for coming out to vote on Election Day.
Paul Adams, Director, Lorain County Board of Elections
James Kramer, Deputy Director, Lorain County Board of Elections
