A ‘thank you’ to election officials

Could we pause for a moment to give a heartfelt “thank you” to the election officials nationwide who delivered for us this year? You had to establish enormous new vote-by-mail and early voting systems, find ways to protect the electronic systems from foreign interference, develop COVID-19-safe methods for in-person voting, recruit and train legions of election workers, and more. And you did so, brilliantly, across the land: “The Nov. 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” according to the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We are so grateful to all of you who made this happen.
