...........and it worked quite well for us in JoCoKs this
morning! We had one memory card "fritz" on us last night and Tab walked
me through the recovery process and all is accounted for! Thanks
Tab. Thanks for standing with us on "standby" last night. You
are an outstanding supporting cast member!
Everyone should send Barry a congratulations for sticking it
out with this account. The JoCoKs Election Commissioner Connie Schmidt
expressed to him that she was pleased with the way the machines performed for
the election yesterday. Even though the poll workers were a bit
overwhelmed with the transition of a new voting system, she received many
positive comment cards from the polling places yesterday and will be sharing
those remarks with us for use in support of the DESI election system.
I want to thank Jane Barth (GEMS goddess) for her
calming nature and patient disposition--came in handy about midway through the
upload last night (next election you get to bring the Meyers).
The entire cast of characters from
DESI indeed performed extremely well and I have
received many positive comments today, so thanks
We had Gwen, Lisa, Ian, and Kevin from Georgia and Brian
Ansel, new project mgr (Alameda Co. CA), and Cory Dukarsky from Omaha
experience their first election day and night. The "initiates" were all
eager to learn and somewhat awed by the outstanding organizational operations
created by the Johnson County Election staff. I have asked each of these
guys to send me a quick write-up of what this experience was like for them,
We also "entertained" visitors at this election, Javier
Chacon, Assistant Election Administrator from El Paso Co., TX and Elaine and
Charles from the Alameda Co. CA election management team. Lots of "open
eyes" and note taking going on yesterday. All three of our client
visitors expressed their appreciation for being allowed to be on-site with us
in Johnson County and to "experience" the day from the outside looking
I'll put together a more formal report in the near future,
but I do want to share this wonderful feeling from the successful election
here in Johnson County, Kansas. Thanks for all
good thoughts, prayers and other various acts of kindness.
