A state-by-state guide to voting in the age of COVID-19
Did you know that America is facing a nationwide poll worker shortage? Usually 56% of poll workers (the people who staff polling places on election day) are over the age of 60, but this year they aren’t signing up due to COVID-19. Unless younger Americans step up, the resulting shortage of poll workers could mean closed polling places and long delays in communities across the country. This is especially problematic for communities of color and working class communities.
How can you help? Register to serve as a poll worker. Visit www.PowerthePolls.org/campus to learn more and apply to serve as a poll worker on election day. The great news is that in most locations, poll workers are paid! So you can get paid, protect our older community members, and ensure a safe and fair election for all. Sounds great, right?!
