This should clear up confusion on provisional ballots. ... See MoreSee Less

As Election Day approaches there has been intense interest in participating, despite the general lack of contested races. Recent changes to the election laws coupled with COVID 19 pandemic have led to an unprecedented volume of mail in ballots.

The Recorder of Deeds office has been operating on a skeleton crew for the last several weeks. We have been doing our best to meet the needs of the public, while also ensuring the safety of the public and our employees. I hope that once plexiglass is installed at our counters, that we will be re-opening very soon thereafter.

That all being said, I have to give a huge shoutout to my entire staff. Those that have been working in our office these last several weeks have been able to keep up the pace of documents arriving by mail and drop off bin in the main lobby. While keeping up with the phones has been challenging, I can assure the public that we have maintained the same standard of timeliness and excellence during this crisis.

For the members of my staff that were furloughed, every single one of them have stepped up to assist the election bureau to help sort the mail in ballots, and answer incoming calls for the hotline. Some of the employees that were not furloughed, still volunteered their time after 4PM. These men and women have worked hard to guarantee that every vote will be counted.

Even our fifth floor office was partially converted into a sorting center. The open spaces , lack of foot traffic during the pandemic, and security cameras made it an ideal location.

I couldn’t be more proud of my staff at this time, especially Lyndsay Wengrzyn, my chief deputy. Lyndsay has showed incredible leadership with this project, working closely with the election bureau to make sure that we were doing all we could to meet their needs.

When you vote tomorrow, or whether you already voted by mail, take a moment and thank the people that work inside the polls, and those and that have worked at the courthouse during these unprecedented times. Their efforts have made it possible for everyone to exercise their constitutional right to vote in Westmoreland County. I think we’ve handled this much better than other counties as a result of these efforts.

In closing, be advised that no more than 25 people will be permitted in a single location at any time. This includes the election workers. While masks are encouraged, they are not required to be able to vote. Please exercise caution and patience when voting tomorrow!

Stay safe!
