Boy Scouts Volunteer for Elections

By  | 

Voter turnout may have been lower than expected in Washington County, but one thing that wasn't lacking was help from some volunteers.

As usual, boy scout troops 216 and 203 were on hand at the courthouse to help bring in the ballots.

Troop leaders say no matter how many ballots get filled out, it's still the same amount of work for the boy scouts, and working with elections at such a young age is a good lesson.

Troop members say they're just there to have fun.

"One thing, we get to wear a snazzy uniform; and second we get to help the community and make things better," Merle Hall, a boy scout, said.

Troop leaders say they've been involved with Washington County elections for the past 12 to 15 years.
