Election Day 2010

At one time in our history, elections in Eden Prairie involved a very simple process.  Voters would come to the polling place, unattended by any election judges,  sign their name and take a ballot, vote and place the ballot in the lard can.  After the polls closed, the judges would come and take an oath, open the lard can and count the votes.   (I am very thankful Betty Schaitberger had shared this early experience as an election judge.)

Over the years, the process has been modernized with vote tabulators and the number of polling places has grown to 19.  One thing that has not changed is the integrity of the election judges.  Generations of election judges in Eden Prairie have consistently served the public by upholding election laws to provide honest and impartial elections.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to each of the following polling places for serving Eden Prairie voters during the 2010 elections:

Christ Lutheran Church
City Hill Fellowship
Eden Lake Elementary School
Eden Prairie Assembly of God
Eden Prairie Community Library
Eden Prairie Presbyterian Church
Eden Prairie United Methodist Church
Grace Church

King of Glory Lutheran Church
Life Church
Pax Christi Community (Precinct 14)
Pax Christi Community (Precinct 16)
