As many here have exhorted us to do more than simply whine or express outrage at “The Man” or “The System” of unfair, stolen elections, fraud, deceit, and chicanery, I have stepped up. You are reading here, the first public acknowledgment of my being assigned, trained, and committing to be a precinct Judge of Elections.
I had attended a Poll Watcher training a few weeks ago, and received a notice that our county was short over 700 workers for our primary this coming Tuesday. So I applied. This afternoon, was informed that I was assigned the position of Judge of Elections. Did an online training this evening, and officially I am ready to go. Unofficially, I will print and read the elections handbook with all of the arcane rules to make sure I am better prepared. This really is a significant responsibility with a lot of procedural details that I need to attend to.
