King County Elections recently opened a number of new ballot drop boxes at locations all over King County, more than doubling the number of places where citizens can exercise their right to vote. This was a major undertaking, as many of those new boxes needed to be open in time for the August primary election.
The Facilities Management Division was tasked with installing the drop boxes, which they did in plenty of time for an “unveiling” ceremony in mid-July. Nate Valderas, an administrator for Elections, sent this note to Building Services:
I wanted to take a quick moment to acknowledge your staff and the assistance they provided to the Department of Elections over the past month. Your crew was instrumental in installing 18 new ballot drop boxes for the voters of King County and we thank them!
Specifically, I wanted to thank Van Pham, Eric Riedel, and Linda Romanovitch for coordinating with us and call out Dave, Eric, and Mike for their work as well.
We’ll have another 19 boxes to install in September and we look forward to working together again.
Congratulations and kudos to FMD Building Services!
