Election Commission focused on the approach of elections

Posted

As the first of three election this year draws closer, the Bradley County Election Commission met on Monday to discuss plans. Among them was making sure there are enough qualified workers for each voting precinct.

Bradley County Administrator of Elections Fran Green said most election workers have been confirmed for May 1, noting she has a large group confirmed for the E.L. Ross Elementary School precinct that she could ask to work in other precincts if needed.

“We have to figure out how many you want at each location,” Green said.

Election Commissioner Dana Burgner suggested having three workers per political party at the small precincts and four workers per party at the big precincts.

Green added the Election Commission must provide one voting machine per 1,000 registered voters and two workers per machine.

“We’re looking at two high school students per location, as well,” Green said.

The Election Commission approved the list of election workers with the understanding some workers’ locations may change for Election Day.

The early voting period for the May 1 election is April 11-26.

In other business, the Election Commission:

• Set the date for the School of Elections for election workers as April 24 at 6 p.m.

• Heard that technicians have been working on the voting machines in anticipation of the May 1 Election Day.

• Heard that nursing home voting starts today.
