August Webinar: Recruiting Poll Workers
Poll Worker Recruitment for Nonprofits
Thursday August 30th, 2:00-3:00pm Eastern
Poll workers are on the front lines of helping people vote on Election Day. This year, many states have new ID requirements and voting procedures, so poll worker recruitment and training will be critical to the Election Day experience. Your nonprofit can ensure that poll workers represent and are familiar with your community by encouraging staff, volunteers, and constituents to serve as poll workers. In many areas, translators are also needed to assist non-English speaking voters by translating voting information and answering questions. Learn how your nonprofit can help facilitate democracy in your community by recruiting poll workers, translators, and poll monitors.
