The Wellington Election vote re-count
They counted one precinct at a time, one race per station. Very methodical and precise.
The re-count took from 8am until 2 pm non-stop counting and re-counting at each station. Every time there was a ballot marked in a questionable way, the ballot was presented to the canvassing board and candidates for review. I found it a fascinating process, but something I would not want to do often.
I enjoyed the campaign season and would do it all over again if there was not a million dollar SuperPAC trying to buy the town and the election. I met so many wonderful people and feel like so many doors were opened for me personally. There are friendships I will always treasure and lessons I learned that could only be taught in this forum.
People keep asking me to stay involved and be prepared to run again in 2 years....that is like asking someone when they are having their next baby as they are leaving the delivery room! I am not opposed to running again, but now is not the time to ask.
