SPRING 2020 TOWN ELECTION RESULTS
Results of St. Germain ballots cast in the April 7 election are available for review at the bottom of the
Voting & Elections
page of the Town website.
While nearly 75% of voting was done by absentee ballots, there were approximately 240 people who came to the polls to vote in person. The entire voting process was accomplished within the gym area of the Community Center. The space was arranged to ensure compliance with social distancing rules and each area a voter occupied was disinfected prior to another voter using the same area or touching anything a previous voter had touched. Only a few voters were allowed in the building at any given time.
All of this was accomplished with planning by the Town Clerk, and full day presence of three paid poll workers, most of the Town Board and some Town Board spouses. Town Supervisors Ted Ritter and Brian Cooper were prohibited from being present as their names were on the ballot. St. Germain Ward 2, County Supervisor Carolyn Ritter was also prohibited from assisting as her name was also on the ballot.
Many compliments were offered by voters and veteran poll workers who felt the voting process was safe and efficient. It is anticipated the same procedures will be employed for the May 12, Congressional District 7 special election.
