Letter: Poll workers are true community heros
Poll workers are true community heroes
If the people of Arizona are looking for heroes, they need look no farther than their election workers.
Yes, I know it sounds like a dichotomy, but I’ve never witnessed a harder working, more dedicated group of Americans in my life, and I’ve had a long and rewarding life. I was fortunate enough to be a poll observer for Yavapai County on election night, and witnessed the synchrony of twelve people working toward a common goal; facilitating votes from residents of Arizona.
The group at Cottonwood Bible Church (polling place) was professional, personable, helpful, tireless and efficient as they worked their individual jobs, and they functioned as an efficient team when rare problems arose.
Their day lasted well over 12 hours and, as anyone who has worked with the public knows, required them to be at their best, both professionally and personally, the entire time. I want to humbly salute them for a superlative job, without which we could not proceed properly through any voting event.
