Raya Stern, president of the Watertown League of Women Voters, writes to thank the many residents who cast their ballots and hopes they keep participating in future elections.
Dear Watertown Patch, The League of Women Voters of Watertown would like to commend the many citizens of Watertown who came out to vote in the election of November 6, 2012. It is very encouraging to see so many people taking advantage of their opportunity to participate directly in our democracy. We hope you all will exercise your right to vote in future elections as enthusiastically. We would also like to praise all those who worked very hard on the election: those in the Town Clerk's office, the election commissioners, the poll workers and the police who helped them. All these people made sure the election went smoothly. Thank you! Raya Stern President of the League of Women Voters of Watertown
