I did it! I survived a 20 hour day at work. We finished earlier than expected and I got to my bed before 4:30 am.
Working for 20 hours straight is exhausting but also amazing in an elections environment, the buzz and anticipation keeps you going and time moves so fast. We sat down ready to count at 10pm and before I knew it, it was 1am.
I had the honour of leading a team of 6 people and they were all superb. Not a single mistake was made, we finished counting all our votes before 2 am and went on to help 3 other teams. I was so proud to be their leader. In spite of the outcome of the election (which I am yet to fully process), this is by far the best count I’ve ever had.
Thank you for reading.
