October - Power the Polls
POWER THE POLLS – Due to the pandemic, many states have made it easier to vote by mail. However, about half of all voters – more than 60 million Americans – are still expected to vote in person at polling locations this year. In recent elections, more than half of all poll workers were older than 60 – an age group that is at the highest risk for COVID-19 infection. Communities that don't have enough poll workers will see longer lines at fewer polling places – making it harder for people to vote. For those of you seeking opportunities to serve your community, and you feel comfortable doing so, we encourage you to apply to serve as a poll worker by clicking here.
Once you sign up, you'll get information about how to apply with your local elections office. If your application is selected, you'll receive special training so you’re ready to serve on Election Day.
