What's the word in English for the person who is responsible for ballot-boxes and count the votes?
We just have "election officials" here.
Poll workers do the counting in each precinct and report their totals to the county officials.
We always had mechanical voting machines so technically the machines did the counting. The local poll workers just report the tallies from the machines to the county. Now it's electronic machines, so who knows if they are still counted locally or if they all get networked together for counting.
