County officials thank pollsters

MOORE — The Cleveland County Election Board recently hosted a “Poll Worker Appreciation” reception where election board staff, board members and elected officials gathered to show appreciation for election volunteers who work at the polling places for each election. During the event, the Election Board identified two election workers who have served for 45 years and 11 workers who have served for 20 years or longer.

More than 100 of the county’s 355 precinct officials and their guests attended the come-and-go event and were honored for their service to county voters.

State Sen. Anthony Sykes issued an official “Citation of Appreciation” to all of the election workers who live or work in Senate District 24.

State Sen. Rob Standridge (District 15), State Rep. Aaron Stiles (District 45) and Bob Cleveland (District 20) and County Commissioner Rod Cleveland all attended the event and thanked election workers for their commitment to the democratic process.

Election Board Secretary Jim Williams was pleased with the turnout and grateful for the participation by elected officials.

“Our county precinct officials serve on the ‘front lines’ of our election system and they deserve to be recognized. We certainly appreciate Sen. Sykes and the other state officials who took part in the celebration,” Williams said.

The Cleveland County Election Board is recruiting additional poll workers for the 2014 statewide elections. Anyone interested in becoming a poll worker should call 366-0210.
