Expression of support

Dear Editor,

As a registered voter of Lincoln County and a member of the Lincoln County Republican Club, I wish to express my support for Election Administrator Paula Buff and Clerk and Recorder Robin Benson.


Buff and Benson have spoken to our club and explained in detail the county election process.  Lincoln County voters can have complete trust in the process because of our administrators’ due diligence and transparency.


Anyone who has taken the county election judges’ training will understand the efforts to insure legitimacy and accuracy of our county elections results.
