A few more building blocks have been put in place for the Nov. 2nd general election.
This past Monday afternoon, members of the election commission met to review voter registration forms and approve poll workers for the election.
Election commissioner Barbara Castleman presented a list of potential poll workers for the upcoming election as well as 247 registration forms to be checked for deficiencies and approved.
According to Castleman, all workers have been turned in with the exception of student workers which will be added in later.
“We’ve had no difficulty getting workers,” she reported. “We’ve gotten several calls.”
Six workers will be used in precincts 1A and B as there are fewer voters in these areas and eight workers will be used in the rest of the precincts with three Republican workers stationed at each precinct.
Castleman is working on getting one to two substitute workers for early voting as well. The list of poll workers was approved with the additions of Ted Clark in 6A as machine operator for early voting, Pam Lester as machine operator in 5 and Ramona Donohoe as an officer and part-time machine operator in 1B.
Upon the approval, Castleman will send a letter to the officer of each precinct labeling each worker with an R or D.
The 247 voter applications were checked by category regarding deficiency breakdown.
A few more applications will be checked and the machines will be tested at the next meeting at 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 11 at the Weakley County Election Office.
