She was even optimistic about voter turnout: 1,631 people voted early despite the weather.
"Thank God the storm happened last week and not this week," said Betty Griffin, a deputy clerk.
Not every county was as lucky as Nicholas.
Secretary of State Natalie Tennant announced Monday five precincts in four counties would be relocated. All were in the northern part of the state.
And while Deitz spent much of last week worried about whether citizens would be able to make it to their local polling places, she was fairly sure the snow would have little effect on voters in her county.
She received a lot of calls Monday from citizens who were worried about the electricity at their precincts, but none seemed worried about making it there.
Shannon Bailes, who lives in Carl, was less certain that life could go on as usual in town, while the snow was still piled up in the rural areas.
"The main areas may be pretty much fine," she said. "But there's still a lot of snow on the back roads where a lot of people live."
Bailes has two children in elementary school and disagreed with the county's push to get them back in school so soon. She's worried both the buildings and the bus routes are still unsafe.

"It was looking really, very bad for several days," she said. "But I think we pulled out of it OK."
