LOCAL NEWS-
The County Line
By Warren Strandell
Polk County Commissioner, Dist. 2
The 2016 election is over. All of the ballots have been counted. Whether you like the outcomes or not, the canvassing is now complete. There really wasnít any chance for a change and/or correction in the county numbers. Not when Michelle Cote and her staff at the Polk County Taxpayer Service Center are conducting it. As director of property records, Cote is the countyís election administrator. She and the about 20 county office employees in the department make every effort possible to conduct elections to comply with every letter of the letter of the law.
Not many of us have any real idea of all that is involved in conducting an election. The process begins in April with the publication of notices that announce the offices that are up for election and filing process for persons who want to be candidates for those offices.
The two-week filing period is then conducted in May after which the Primary Election ballot must be developed and proofed a number of times before finally approved. With school districts, whose boundaries do not correspond with the borders of townships, and with the townships themselves, the different soil & water conservation districts, the cities that have their elections in conjunction with the primary and general elections, judges, etc., some 122 different ballots have to be developed.
