Members of the DeKalb County Election Commission addressed the county commission last Monday night to request that more office and storage space be made available to the election commission.Election Commission Administrator Dennis Stanley, Chairman Walteen Parker and Secretary Harry Lasser spoke to the county commission, stressing that the two cramped offices in the basement of the courthouse are already overflowing, and that among other things, security and privacy are major concerns with a busy election season looming ahead. “We were hoping we would be allowed to have more square footage and more room with the transition to the complex but it never materialized,” Parker told the assembly. “Space is needed to accommodate voters, candidates, and citizens who come to our office to conduct business.“That is business which is confidential or needs to be a private discussion,” she continued.
