I have had the privilege of acting as a volunteer poll watcher. I am impressed by the work of all I saw. Voters with physical disabilities work hard to vote in person. I saw community members assisting new voters. It is democracy in action.

Municipal clerks and their poll workers have been working hard since early October accepting our early in-person ballots and mail-in ballots. Processing of early ballots has now started — results will only be revealed on Election Day. Poll workers follow regulations with precision. Even at the end of a long day, they treat everyone with courtesy and respect.

My deep thanks go to these workers who carefully guard our democracy.

Please remember to do your part and vote.
