Letters to the editor for Dec. 2, 2010


Powerful storm leaves us with a few thankful moments

    It was a Thanksgiving week to remember.
 Unfortunately, we will remember it for the wrong things — like snowfall, downed trees, freezing temperatures, blocked roads, cars in ditches, power outages, no water, no heat and, for many, not much of a holiday.
    A few of us, certainly, were frozen- or blacked-out of long-planned gatherings of family and friends and had to hastily make other plans.

Casting ballots early will speed counting process

    Here are a couple of questions that may have crossed voters’ minds during the two weeks between the election and Nov. 16, when Tuolumne County’s last ballots were counted and its tightest races were finally decided.
    • How come it takes our elections office one night to count more than 20,000 votes and nearly two weeks to tally another 3,800 ballots that were either dropped off at polling places on election day or raised some eligibility questions and were classified “provisional”?
    • Is there any way to speed the process, thus sparing candidates, the backers of bond measures and the interested public long days of suspense and anxiety?
