Way We Were: Denny & Mary Lou

In recent days, Jesse Tinsley's been going through the photos that he snapped when he was first assigned to the Coeur d'Alene bureau of The Spokesman-Review 20 years ago. This is one of them — Denny Davis and Mary Lou Reed celebrating on Election Night. Since area Democrats haven't had much to celebrate on Election Night since 1994, I'd guess this photo was from 1992 when Denny & Mary Lou were both state senators from District 2 (which encompassed all of Kootenai County and was represented by 5 legislators). To show how things have changed, state Rep. Freeman Duncan was the only Republican legislator in North Idaho.

DOTC: I Will Steer Clear Of Ballots

Dan of the County: I do not handle or pick up or count or in any way interact with ballots when I am on the ballot myself. I will be visiting polling sites on election day to deliver other supplies and check on election day activities in general as is my responsibility. That also includes getting called out to polling sites when there are reports of someones sign being too close, etc. On election night I will be at the elections office but again will not handle ballots and will not be involved in posting results on the internet or other reports.

Question: Any other question for the clerk’s office re: ballot handling or Election Night?
