Thank you for joining All Voting is Local and Power the Polls on the frontlines of democracy. Following through on your commitment to serve as a poll worker and showing up for your poll worker assignment is essential to ensure our democracy works for all eligible voters.
THE ELECTION IS NOW.
Find resources here to help get prepared, but remember this content is only meant to supplement—not replace—the essential poll worker training being offered in your state. If you have specific questions about poll working in your local community or your poll worker assignment visit Power the Polls to find the contact information for your local elections administrators.
America is facing a record shortage of poll workers this year due to COVID-19, so it is even more important to get prepared and to show up. Watch our training videos below to learn what to expect when you work the polls and some of the issues you’re likely to encounter.
