Election feedback

The state Office of Elections and Elections Commission are investigating the general election, and a subcommittee report is due Jan. 7. No official forum for public comment has been created, but if you were discouraged by long lines/ballot shortages or witnessed other details, share it. Spokesperson Rex Quidilla told the Weekly that community concerns would be part of the investigation.
