Charles City County General’s Registrar’s Office would like to thank Charles City Sheriff’s Office for all their help on Election Day. The department executed a stealthily, efficiently, and successful plan that made our staff, Officers of Elections, and our voters feel safe. I’d like to thank our Officers of Elections for their outstanding job they did for the voters. Some of our officers worked in the general registrar’s office during the 45 days of early voting, pre-processing ballots flawlessly.

Editorial: Don’t lose perspective after working to reach a dream

By Robb Johnson | November 3, 2020 8:06 pm

In life, there are those who are go-getters and those who stand in place to wait for handouts. Those bystanders often wait for the handout and blame everyone else for their problems. I hope that people like this turn around and find the help or wakeup call that allows you to break the cycle.
