MONROE - The City of Monroe is implementing additional procedures for poll workers to use to ensure ballot safekeeping and accountability starting at the general election Nov. 4. City Clerk Carol Stamm said she has requested a police officer to be posted at the main door of the polling place by 8 p.m. when the poll closes and to remain on site until all ballot bags are sealed. The city uses the Recreation Department, located in the basement for the City Hall, as its polling place.
