Thank You Letter to Clerks 11-04-2010.pdf33.98 KB

On behalf of the members of the Government Accountability Board and our staff, we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to you, our valued Municipal and County Clerks, for being a critical and necessary part of successfully conducting the Fall 2010 General Election. Congratulations on a job exceptionally well done!

We consider it a successful election when most voters have a pleasant experience and remember its outcome rather than any issues at the polling place.  Based on the feedback we have received and media reports, this was a successful election.  We know of no major problems, no major glitches and no major surprises that interfered with, slowed-down, or derailed more than 2.16 million Wisconsin residents exercising their Constitutional right and civic responsibility on Tuesday.  Administering successful elections requires dedication and getting things done in a timely manner.  Due to your dedication, commitment and hard work, Wisconsin again lived-up to its well-deserved reputation for conducting open, fair, and transparent elections.

As we turn our attention to the post-2010 election cycle and begin to focus on 2011, we want to assure you that we will continue to collaborate closely with you as we review election business processes, practices, and procedures in order to continue to improve elections in Wisconsin, with an eye to making it more efficient for local election officials.  We look forward to your robust and dynamic involvement in this process.
