We had over 2,800 Election Officers (including students) at the polls – 2,876 to be exact! Combined with the number of Field Technicians, Ride Along Coordinators (Field Tech Assistants), and Receiving Station personnel, the total number of election workers actually exceeded 3,000.
That’s a historic number for the San Mateo County Elections Office! Previous election worker numbers usually stayed closer to about 2,000. The greater numbers really helped us to keep the lines tamed throughout Election Day.
A special thank you note to our poll workers will arrive in mailboxes by Thanksgiving!
