Thanks for a job well done by ballot counters

| June 14, 2022 7:00 AM

As a volunteer with the Kootenai Heritage Council at the Libby Memorial Center and a worker for Edison Research (which has collected election results for most of the national networks for years), I saw firsthand the hard work and dedication of everyone involved with this month's County Primary Election.

All of the workers at the Memorial Center were there from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Then many of them showed up the next two days to help tabulate the results of the election.

Others joined them spending long hours for several days tabulating results in the basement of the County Annex.

Through no fault of the County, the ballots had to be hand counted, a tedious process that would have been impossible without the direction of the county Election Administrators and the group of workers that signed up to help.

A special thanks to all!
