Election Insurance Question May Be Resolved

The question has been answered. Putnam County executive Kim Blaylock says that she has communicated with representatives of the county's insurance company, and they have assured her that the county election commission has coverage for the upcoming May primary. In fact, the election commission is listed as one of the "named insureds" on the county policy for both liability insurance and errors and omissions. Election officials say they had been told that they may not be covered under the county policy and had asked for a clarification of the issue. Blaylock is scheduled to report her findings to the full county commission next week.
