Tuesday’s school election went smoothly according to Missoula County Elections administrator Bradley Seaman, with about 40% voter turnout.
It was a night that could not have been possible without all of the staff involved. But Seaman notes a new law will soon make it illegal to pause counting, which means the people counting will have to continue until they are finished — even if it takes them all night.
“It is all about the community coming together to support elections. We are so fortunate in Missoula County that we’ve been able to really recruit and train great election judges,” Seaman told MTN News. “We’re one of the few communities that has been successful in training and recruiting enough judges.”
