Westmoreland County looking for longtime ballot-casters for state Voters Hall of Fame

Rich Cholodofsky

Westmoreland County voters who have cast ballots in the last 50 or more general elections could be honored this year as Hall of Famers.

Pennsylvania’s Department of State Elections Bureau has inducted more than 23,000 residents in the Voters Hall of Fame, including 292 from Westmoreland County.

To be considered, voters must have voted in at least 50 consecutive general elections, meaning those eligible have had to have cast ballots every year since 1968.

Applications can be submitted to the county’s election bureau. A ceremony for new inductees is scheduled for Sept. 20 at the Westmoreland County Courthouse.

State officials inducted 33 Westmoreland residents in to the voting Hall of Fame in 2015.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
