'Beloit residents answered the call'

Print Article

The call for help was placed and the City of Beloit residents answered the call.

As the City of Beloit's lead election administrator, I'd like to thank and applaud the 146 citizens who stepped forward on August 14, 2018 to conduct the Partisan Primary Election at nine polling locations throughout the city.

Election work can be difficult work. It is physically demanding; some volunteers work the full day lasting between 13-6 hours straight (many worked AM/PM shifts that run 8-9 hours long). Some traveled to various polling locations to serve where needs were spotted. It is mentally challenging as the election laws continuously change and shift and some voters can be demanding and impatient at times. But election work can also be a lot of fun in spending the day getting to know your neighbors coming in to vote as well as making friends with fellow workers.

I was able to personally visit 7 of the 9 polling locations on Election Day and I was delighted to witness community and cooperation everywhere I went.

I'm continually comforted by the response when I call to action the resources necessary to conduct yet another election. As we proceed towards the November 6th General Election, I know that I have a strong base of capable, experienced citizens trained to execute without doubt. Special thanks to those who served as Chief Inspectors - I honestly don't know what I'd do without you. Thanks to all of you and I will see you in November.
