Citizen of the Week

Thursday, November 8, 2012

This week's CoW is a small herd -- i.e., the volunteers who staffed the ballot count at the Berryville courthouse Tuesday night. As their nominator put it, "Once every two years, these people pull this all-nighter for democracy. The counting machine is crankier than the election commissioners, but everyone does what has to be done. Last night they didn't get rolling good for a couple hours, then the wheels fell off a little, but in the end, by which I mean after 3 in the morning, it all started coming together. Those few who hung around cheered them on. The important thing is, all the votes got counted. Everyone who took the time to make their choices known, had those choices honored." Thank you all poll workers and vote counters!
