EAC encourages those interested in becoming election workers at the polls on election day to learn more about what is required and how to sign up to work with your local election official. – website
  • Power the Polls- As coronavirus continues to impact Americans across the country, we are also seeing a staggering decrease in poll workers — which could mean closed polling places and long delays for elections in 2020. You can help make sure we have a safe, fair, efficient election for all voters, and potentially get paid to do it.- website
