To the editor:

I am a poll worker, who worked Election Day in the Town of Brooklyn. I want to thank everyone nationwide who participated in this democratic process — our elections.

The county and municipal clerks and poll workers made sure things were done right, honestly, fairly, efficiently and safely.

There were 1,335 voters in the Town of Brooklyn — more voters both absentee, in-person early voters and voters at the polls than before. It was a busy day.

In accordance with Wisconsin law we processed all ballots Election Day while voters voted and new voters were registered. Most of us worked from 6:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Any one questioning the accuracy of our election process in Wisconsin has ample opportunities to watch the process in action every election.

The public is welcome to observe the pre-election public testing of voting machines, observe at the polling sites Election Day and observe the county canvasses that certify the county votes.

I encourage you to get involved and observe. These are safeguards in our election process.
