The Allen County Election Board has created an award to honor an election worker making a difference for voters.
The Jeanne Nicolet Delivering Democracy Award will be presented after every Allen County election to recognize the work of an outstanding election worker, a news release from the Election Board said Friday. The award is named after Jeanne Nicolet, who served as the Allen County Assistant Director of Elections and as an election volunteer and worker for more than 30 years.
"Jeanne passed away in July 2019, but will always be remembered for her hard work, loyalty, integrity, friendship and absolute dedication to fair and accurate elections in Allen County," the news release said.
The person who wins the award will have demonstrated exceptional effort and service while working as an election worker for the Allen County Election Board. Nominations will be accepted at the Allen County Election Board office or online at allencountyvoters.info through Nov. 8. The winning nominee will be recognized by members of the Election Board at its Nov. 15 meeting.
