On behalf of members of the Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.) and our Elections Division staff, Nat Robinson and I wish you good health and prosperity during 2013!

G.A.B. members asked that we share their heartfelt appreciation for your dedication and commitment that significantly contributed to our shared success throughout 2012, a year like no other in the State’s electoral history.

In addition, Nat and I want to thank you for your patience, professionalism and positive attitude that you maintained during this game-changing year that provided challenges and opportunities.  Whether it was a special election, a recount, recalls or having to deal with the most sweeping changes in election administration since this State’s 1848 statehood -- Voter Photo ID -- you stepped-up to the plate and achieved success.  You deserve our praise and gratitude.  Thank you!

As we continue to plan and prepare for a 2013 that will likely bring even more challenges and opportunities, we are confident your demonstrated commitment, dedication and success will serve as an inspiration and continue to be an exemplary model to the nation and the world on how this country’s most decentralized electoral system does it, does it consistently and always in an exceptional manner!

Attached for your information is a list of staff-identified 2012 major strategic election administration successes that, through working effectively together, we can all be proud of.  From our staff to you and yours, we wish you a successful 2013!
