AMERICA NEEDS YOU
The best way to ensure free, fair, and accessible elections is through more citizen engagement. However, with all of the recent changes to U.S. elections, it is more challenging than ever to figure out how to serve. All states have election processes. What is less commonly known is that counties and county equivalents have their own processes, too. The steps below will guide you through the process of signing up to become an election worker through your county.
Right now, America faces severe challenges with staffing of election workers. Recruiting poll workers is often a challenge for many election officials across the country has made this need even more critical. Despite many states expanding access to an unsecure vote-by-mail option, millions of Americans – especially voters who lack reliable mail service – will continue to rely on in-person voting to cast a ballot. With True the Vote, you can make sure you are not simply voting, but that you are helping others.
If you are able and willing to serve, please see below to 1) find your county information to sign up to work the polls 2) call your county to confirm 3) and let us know if you plan to serve.
HOW CAN YOU GET STARTED?
You can start by finding your county below to pull up information about your local election administrator. Election staff and volunteers are recruited and overseen by the local election authority, which should provide information and training to poll workers in advance of Election Day. Keep in mind, states and counties across the country are changing election processes constantly, so the second step of calling your county will be important.
