WATCH Weekly Report 01-04-17


Welcome to the 2017 WATCH Adjudication Year!  I’d like to thank you all in advance for serving as judges, Board Reps, and (or) alternates this year.  WATCH runs on the ballots you submit and we deeply appreciate the driving, the time, and the thought and discernment that go into your ballots.  Thank you, all!

Normally you will get this report on Wednesdays, but prepping all of the information to create this first report took me a little longer this year, so thank you also for your patience.

How to use the Weekly Report:

  1. I usually put important announcements in this header section, so read this part. 
  2. Search for your name and see if you have any assignments where I’m looking for reservation information or to know if you ballot was submitted.  I love knowing those things.  Please tell me when you’ve made your reservation (so I don’t worry) and when you’ve filed your ballot (so that I can help make sure that it didn’t disappear into the ether.)
  3. Right now I know most judge numbers but not all of them.  If you see that I have your judge number under an assignment but not your name, drop me a note and let me know your number.  Don’t know your number yet?  Check with your Board Rep.  Soon I’ll have all the judges with the correct judge numbers, which will make me happy.

Parking - Parking is on the street. Watch posted signs, as some have two hour parking limitations. The Capital One Bank on the corner of Wilkes and Washington streets lets our patrons park in their lot when the bank is closed. Please note The Capital One Bank has extended their hours to include evening and weekend hours. Please make sure not to use their parking lot when they are open.
There are several garages within walking distance - one is on Washington Street, near King, and there are several on Pitt, near King. Look for the "Public Parking" signs.
