Criticism of Burbank city clerk is misplaced

It was extremely disappointing to read your critique of the Burbank city clerk’s office regarding the February election (“City revises vote-count plan for April election,” March 16).

For years, this office has done incredible work for the citizens of Burbank, properly placing the highest priority on the accuracy of our election results.

They have been very proactive in working with the post office to be sure that the maximum amount of ballots can be delivered on a timely basis to their office. They are dedicated to the highest standards in the design and implementation of policies and procedures for handling all ballots.

Personally, I am more than happy to wait an extra hour or two to hear the results, since the reason for that delay is to obtain the highest and best accuracy and ensure that all votes are counted.
