Election watchers

 

continued

As a Democratic candidate for re-election, Kestenbaum himself will be barred from polling places that day (except when he votes himself, at Pioneer High). He plans to spend the day keeping in touch, by phone, as a troubleshooter. "We're sort of the backup for the city or township clerks," he says, explaining that he can hire last-minute workers if needed or refresh callers on rules (for example, the media can do "exit interviews," but can't talk to waiting voters). Once the polls close, the votes will be counted at the precincts and the tallies relayed to Kestenbaum, who'll post them at ewashtenaw.org.

As convenient as it is to follow the vote online, some revved-up political junkies still want to watch the tally at the clerk's office at 200 N. Main. For them, Kestenbaum--a political junkie himself--plans to put out some snacks in the lobby. He adds that county treasurer Catherine McClary--herself up for reelection--"also provides some apples and chips."    (end of article)
