The upcoming state and district elections are also a logistical challenge: "the ballots arrived in two trucks, which meant a total of 50 pallets", reports klaus plescher. The area manager at the district administration office is the deputy election officer in the voting district of bad kissingen. The campaign covers not only the district of bad kissingen, but also the western district of rhon-grabfeld: a total of 10,33,000 copies of the four ballots were printed for each of the 35 municipalities. "The documents are all out", reports plescher on the distribution. Nevertheless, there is still a lot to do.
Klaus plescher’s desk is full of election documents. After a european election, the state election is only the second that plescher is in charge of centrally. "Otherwise, i was usually a polling station assistant." Election officer is lawyer and head of department nina opfermann. But most of the questions go to plescher: "there have been staff changes in many municipalities", he reports. That’s why there are so many inquiries.
