I appreciate everyone who provided input to the county's discussion on the Strategic Plan Vision Statement. Your voice was heard and the Board approved the Strategic Plan with the revised Vision Statement of:

 I enjoyed touring El Dorado County Elections Department at their new location: 3883 Ponderosa Road, Shingle Springs. Registrar of Voters Bill O’Neill has done a great job of working with our Facilities Department to lay out the new space to be inviting to the public with a high level of transparency of the elections processes. Stop by any time during regular business hours to visit the new location, Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, or learn more at their website: https://www.edcgov.us/Government/Elections
