To the Editor:
Now that the election as come to an end I feel the need to present a report card of how the Gloucester County Board of Election performed. Here is a county department that most people really don’t understand. People say to me, “When I visited the office, it always seems empty. Who works there? Where is everybody?”
Let me tell you, someone was there, especially on election night. Having worked the polls that entire day I had the opportunity to call the Board of Elections about 25 times. Each time I called someone immediately picked up the phone and took my information, did some research and came back to me with a response in a timely manner.
This was compounded with the fact that I had lines of people waiting to vote and had to pull them out of line to take care of business, have them vote and send them on their way. No resident was disappointed.
Some people haven’t voted in more than five years, some were first-time voters, some never registered, some were in the wrong district, plus many name changes. All were taken care of with the help I received from the Gloucester County Board of Elections.
