I want to extend my gratitude and appreciation to all who participated in the historic November 3, 2020, General Election. Nearly 400,000 Lee County voters chose to be part of the process of electing the leaders of our community, our state, and our nation.
Together we reached a historically high voter turnout of 81 percent. Whether you chose to vote by Mail, Early Vote, or vote on Election Day, we wanted to make sure that you had a superior voting experience. This was accomplished with the help of all who were involved in the process.
To all of the Lee County Elections staff, thank you for all your efforts and the overtime hours you worked to ensure the election went smoothly. A special thanks to all the Early Voting and Election Day poll workers who were on the front lines servicing the voters during a pandemic. To the temporary election support staff who came in to help with the Vote-by-Mail process to help make it smoother. We must thank the candidates for their courage to run for office and local news agencies for their support and help in providing voters with essential election information.
Moreover, of course, the voters of Lee County, for your patience, understanding, and trust in my team and me. I am proud to serve as your Supervisor of Elections. Thank you to all who helped to make this election a success.
I wish you a Happy New Year filled with good health and good cheer!
