The DeKalb County Election Commission recognized the people to help during Election Day with a reception last Thursday at the DeKalb County Complex. Election workers from across the county, who have helped work elections for years, especially last year, attended the event.
“We wanted to show the workers they are appreciated and they are the ones who help make the electoral process in DeKalb County a success,” said Chairman Walteen Parker. “These election workers follow the law verbatim. They don’t deviate. They treat everyone equally. We can trust their integrity. It has helped to maintain the integrity of the elections in DeKalb County.”
“We wanted to recognize these workers because without them there is no election process. We have 12 precincts and it takes a lot of workers and we appreciate every one of them,” said Administrator of Elections Dennis Stanley.
Sue Corley, a current election worker who began in the 1970’s, was also recognized during the event for her service.
The new voting machine, which is scheduled to be used in March 2024, was also available for viewing and demonstration.
