This year brought San Franciscans more elections than any previous year that we remember, culminating in the November 4 event that presented a bulky ballot and brought out huge crowds. The Department of Elections has documented some of their work, mentioning many of the unsung workers who managed to put everything together and carry it through. Every step of the way from getting an accurate text of ballot measures and spelling candidates’ names correctly required hard careful work by someone. And on the day of the election, poll workers, inspectors, technicians, and all the people who oversaw the process and safeguarded our votes deserve a vote of thanks. Whether you are happy about the results or not, this was a difficult operation to pull off. Its success gives us all something to celebrate this Thanksgiving Day.
