It took that many poll workers to smoothly accommodate the record turnout for Tuesday's presidential election - 221,492 voters. The heavy turnout obliterated the old record, set in 2008, by 32,582 additional voters.

"We were successful because of our poll workers," said Chris Davis, Knox County's Elections Administrator. "All they have to learn and deal with - they do an amazing job. They're fantastic."
