Janielle Tomlin named Washington State’s County Elections Employee of the Year for 2019
VANCOUVER — The Election Offices in each of Washington state’s 39 counties have been working with the Office of the Secretary of State to develop and implement VoteWA – a new election management and voter registration system. An extraordinary effort has been made by the VoteWA implementation team to ensure that VoteWA will be implemented well in advance of the 2020 Presidential election.
For her contributions to the VoteWA effort, Secretary of State Kim Wyman recently recognized Clark County Elections’ employee Janielle Tomlin as Washington State’s County Elections Employee of the Year for 2019.
When announcing the award, Secretary Wyman said, “Janielle has been a Same Day Voter Registration planner, VoteWA Super User, VoteWA regional trainer and all around rock star! A consummate elections professional, her knowledge of Washington election law makes our office look forward to working with her.”
Greg Kimsey, Clark County auditor, said “Janielle’s supervisor, Elections Manager Cathie Garber, and I are so appreciative of the quality and quantity of work that Janielle has given to developing and implementing VoteWA. Her contributions are a big part of why VoteWa is going to be successful.”
When completed, VoteWA will be a fully-integrated, centralized voter registration and election management solution that processes candidate filing and petition management. Its public portal will feature an online voters’ guide and a results reporting application.
VoteWA will provide improved security for Washington elections, increased consistency of election procedures across the state and better service for voters. VoteWa will be the most advanced statewide election management and voter registration system in the country.
