As coronavirus continues to impact Americans across the country, there has been a staggering decrease in the number of people who are able to work the polls -- which could mean closed polling places and long delays during the November election.
The AFL-CIO is proud to partner with Power the Polls, a first-of-its-kind initiative to recruit poll workers to ensure a safe, fair election for all voters.
Will you help us address our nation’s critical poll worker shortage? You can help make sure we have a safe, fair, efficient election for all voters, and potentially get paid to do it. Sign up to Power the Polls today.
Once you’ve signed up, depending on your jurisdiction, you will either be contacted by Power the Polls, a partner organization, or your local election administrators regarding your application.
The process to become a poll worker can be a bit complicated, but don’t worry: the Power the Polls team will help you along the way. In the coming weeks, Power the Polls will host briefings to provide you with more information about the application process and what to expect when you become a poll worker.
In the meantime, we also ask that you encourage your friends and family to sign up to be poll workers and help ensure a safe and fair election. Click below to share Power the Polls with your network.
