Vote Count Proves Remunerative

The Apr. 11-2C Neighborhood Board vote count was a whopping success and probably will net League coffers more than $3,000.

Arlene Ellis, vote count chair, reports that during that period 37 volunteers worked 522 hours, sorting and checking more than 74,000 ballots cast by residents of this island. This is a 21.3% increase in the number of votes cast over the last election.

"I hope all fingers will be completely healed by June 29," Ellis says. "We're going to have a 'biggie' and we'll need all the help we can get."

Wahiawa has petitioned for an N.E. Its election will be held sometime in May or early June.

Ellis will need some 20 to 30 volunteers to do a "physical" tally beginning at 8:30 a.m. on June 29 in City Hall.

An indefatigable member-couple -Mary Ellen and Bob Reed - have been sorely missed in our recent vote counts. League always relied on Bob to do the verification for the final results. We're sorry to hear he has been ill.

Ellis has received word from the Hawaiian Government Employees' Association (HGEA) that it "cannot afford" our vote count service. Its election is slated for next spring.
