Regarding the logistics of election night results reporting- The County Election Board with a unanimous vote, has changed the way results will be given this election, said Rockey.
The Washington County Justice Center will be closed to the public on election night.
The results will still be tabulated precinct by precinct, the CEB will supply reports, (in real-time) to the local media, who will be present.
Rebecca White, Owner and General Manager of WSLM will be reading the results LIVE along with her co-host of the election broadcast, Brad Gilbert.
“We are grateful that our local community media outlets are partnering with our County Election Board in keeping everyone safe but well informed,” said Rockey. “As your County Election Administrator, the health and safety of my voters, election workers, my employees, and our families are my number one priority!”
