Poll workers are an essential part of the election process. They’re also harder to find than in the past. Enter Power the Polls. According to a recent article on GovExec, this nonpartisan, nonprofit group has been helping recruit poll workers since 2020.
Jane Slusser, the program manager, said, “We will have a lot of recruitment happen basically through early- to mid-September. Then the month of October in most places means that people are getting trained, they’re getting their assignments. They ask all their last-minute questions and then they’re ready to go for Election Day in November, or they’re already starting to serve where places have early voting.”
