There are differences between the quite complex state or federal elections and local government elections. Here is a small guide about how local elections are carried out.
Facts about local government elections
I have been associated with in local government from a variety of angles since last 25 years. But most thrilling of the assignments that I have done is that of being the election officials.
As supervising the complete process wherein local citizens would come and work at the polls, make our whole system work. From electing a Coroner to the President, that is where the action is. This is a sacred responsibility!
Insight into local government elections
Step 1: To begin with, first the ballots are distributed.
Step 2: Once the prospective voter has “clearly stated their name” and been checked off the voter list, election official glues his initials to the ballot and hand over that to them.
Step 3: Before the voting actually starts the election official actually clears all their doubts so they are well equipped with the information required.
Step 4: Election official is sited at the end of the registration table with enough room for someone to stand and exchange in some small talk, and clearing anyone’s doubt or queries of any type!
Step 5: Once voting starts off, it would be the official responsibility to check if someone has any doubt or nothing untoward happens!
Indeed shouldering such a big responsibility has become a treasure of my sweet memories!
