To the editor:

This is a letter of support from the Dallas County precinct elections officials for Julia Helm’s bid for Dallas County Auditor.

We are your friends and neighbors who greet you at the polls with a smile. We check you in on the laptops and issue you a ballot.

There are more than 200 precinct officials who work with Julia Helm in any election cycle. She trains us with integrity, focusing on election law. With much patience, she is willing to go the extra mile to make sure we all understand and feel comfortable with election procedures.

The training materials, which she has developed, explain the election machines and are essential for completing all the steps of opening and closing the polls. Her hands-on training, both with these machines and with the electronic poll book, makes us feel confident in executing accurate elections.

We work hard to get the elections results in as quickly as possible, and we know that Julia has a plan to improve this process.

She has the knowledge and the proven election experience to move the auditor’s office into the future. Please join all of us precinct election workers in voting for Julia Helm, someone we know and trust, in the Republican primary election June 7.
