I want to take a minute and let all the voters know what precautions and safety measurers we have implemented in the 2018 Kane County Primary Election.
First; all county clerks in the state of Utah are on the ballot this year. When we have opposition we do not count the ballots. As your County Clerk, I do not even touch a ballot (except to vote my own.) I don’t help in early voting, by-mail processing, or on Election Day. It is tough because I am a worker and to sit back and let others work is hard.
Second: we lock all the ballots and all equipment to count the ballots into the vault at night. A Deputy Sheriff seals the vault and records the number of the security seal. The following morning the Deputy Sheriff verifies that the seal is intact and has not been tampered with.
Third: we have brought in an outside election judge every day to work all day from the opening of the vault to the closing of the vault as the ballots are processed. All staff leave the office together.
Fourth: we have a Deputy Sheriff in attendance when ballots are opened, counted and recorded.
The last three items are extra precautions and safety measures that have been implemented to protect the County Taxpayers due to unfounded rumors and innuendo.
