USA Today reports that states and counties are seeking new and younger poll workers for November as record numbers of suddenly-engaged citizenry are expected to cast ballots across American come November. Here in Georgia, a spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office tells Peach Pundit:
Secretary Handel is encouraging county elections officials to recruit additional poll workers to help manage expected high voter turnout in the November 4 general election, paying particular focus to recruiting tech-savvy high school and college students. Secretary Handel also encourages high school and college students to consider becoming poll workers when she speaks to these groups.
For more information on becoming a poll worker, Georgians should contact their county registrar’s office: http://sos.georgia.gov/cgi-bin/registrars.asp
