Letter: It was an honor to help voters who needed some assistance on Election Day

I have a problem with people who do not take voting seriously, so with this in mind, I was in the position to see every voter – over 800 of them – so I decided to take a survey of my own, and want to share the results with the general public.

I am writing this letter in regards to the midterm Election Day on Nov. 8.

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as an election judge in Becker County for the past five years and to work with other fine citizens who have accepted that honor. The last two election cycles I have been helping with the placing of the ballots in the machine.

I have a problem with people who do not take voting seriously, so with this in mind, I was in the position to see every voter – over 800 of them – so I decided to take a survey of my own, and want to share the results with the general public.

I took a careful count of all the folks who had difficulty walking or who had disabilities who still managed to get out and vote. There were 67 of you folks, and it was my privilege to help you get your ballot in the machine and get your vote counted. God Bless all of you voters for your willingness to get out and vote.
