To say the Lebanon County Voter Registration and Elections Office staff has had one heck of a bumpy ride in the run-up to Tuesday’s election would not be inaccurate.
But with less than 24 hours to go until election day, the workers in the office have no worries.
Deputy Elections Director Christine Hartman, who came on board in late August, after longtime Deputy Jo Ellen Reilly retired, says despite the challenges they’re ready to put on an election:
She says they’ve been busy, assisting voters who voted early – in person using absentee ballots. Now they’re nailing down the final details to open the county’s 60 polling places for in-person voting tomorrow:
While a new Elections Director has yet to be hired, the county contracted with Patricia Nace, a retired Elections Director from Snyder County. She has been overseeing operations within the Lebanon County Elections Office for over a month.
In addition, former Elections Director Michael Anderson has been overseeing assistance, as needed, throughout the run-up to tomorrow.
