…I can say that myself and everyone in my office takes great pride in the integrity of the election. –JoDee Treat, Beltrami County Auditor and Treasurer

…it was an utterly nonpartisan process... we sat together; it was a very careful accounting job that we did, and we had Republicans and Democrats. We didn't discuss politics, of course, and everybody took it very seriously to make sure that voters had a good experience. – Mark Morrissey, Beltrami County Election Official
