This was only supposed to be a summer job in High School, but 31 years later, Supervising Cadastral Technician, Rebecca Getzen, has found quite an interesting career. She has served in almost every area of the department, becoming an expert in every area of elections. Her experience has ranged from supervising the warehouse, to recruiting poll workers, to her current job as supervisor of the mapping unit.
Rebecca has enjoyed working with maps her entire life. She states, "even as a child going on Sunday drives with my family, I had a map in my lap."
Growing up, Rebecca moved around a lot - even to other countries. This experience has prepared her for the flexibility required to work in elections. She states, "This taught me to be flexible, 'go with the flow' and how to adapt to many situations. Working at the Registrar of Voters office, you need to be ready for any situation that may arise. Every employee wears many different hats depending where we are in an election cycle."
Rebecca also takes pride in being part of the democratic process and "knowing that we go above and beyond to help citizens register and vote, and making sure every eligible vote counts."
