Dan of the County: All’s Quiet On The Election Front

Well, here’s another “behind the scenes” update from election central. We’ve had no new filings today. But, scores of election workers and technicians are feverously working to get the giant crystal ball shined up and ready to slowly descend down the flagpole in front of the elections office while candidates and workers alike are shouting 10, 9 ,8,…1, Happy end of the filing period! Just kidding except that we are on a countdown to EXACTLY 5 p.m. when the filing for county offices close. There will be a bit of anxiety and interest on the part of candidates (me included) to see if there are any last minute St. Paddy’s Day surprises.
