To the editor:
Although preparations for a general election begin
in June prior to the election, they conclude at the end of November,
well after Election Day. It is an arduous process that requires the
work of county clerk staff, election judges, volunteers and a myriad
of others who partner with us to make significant contributions to
the success of the election.
In Logan County we train over 225 election judges who serve a
two-year commission. They learn about election law, operation of
voting equipment and the many details necessary to document the
election process. These judges unselfishly give substantial hours of
their time. We thank them and are grateful for their service to the
citizens of Logan County.
Besides conducting the elections for the 31,000 residents of
Logan County, the employees of the Logan County clerk's office serve
the public in a number of other ways. They handle the vital
statistics reporting, issuance of marriage licenses, tax extension
and redemption, accounts payable and receivable, provide county
board support, and record all land transactions for the county.
Their efficiency and dedication often goes unnoticed. I commend my
staff for their commitment to their jobs and to the citizens they
This year's voter turnout was unprecedented, and I hope the trend
continues. The primary and consolidated elections coming up this
spring are extremely important to our daily life and greatly impact
how our tax dollars are spent locally.
Thank you again for all you have done to make Election Day a
success. God bless you and God bless America!
Sally J. Litterly
Your Logan County clerk
