Letter: Voter access

February 26, 2013


To the editor:

Residents of Douglas County are mighty lucky to have Jamie Shew as our county clerk. Jamie and his staff have worked tirelessly to ensure voters have ready access to the polls.

The county’s decision to extend early voting hours to Sunday, to accommodate folks who might have otherwise been prevented from voting by the pending storm, is to be commended. Thank you, Jamie Shew, and thanks, too, to your staff at the county courthouse! Our democracy is stronger for your dedicated efforts.

Monday 2/25/13 was a busy day. One of the busiest early voting days I've experienced.

Good job Jamie Shew as one who was busting his behind to keep up with demand. The staff in general was maintaing quite a friendly nature. Good job to all.

I hate to say it because I despite the guy, but Secretary Chris Kobach was responsible for the extension of early voting hours. He issued a directive to all county clerks based on the impending snow storm to extend early voting hours to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday.
