Today’s Action: Sign up to be a poll worker

48 days to election day – and we still need poll workers for November 3rd. If you’re looking for a way to help usher in a Democratic victory, your efforts as a poll worker could be the difference between a shuttered voting location vs a place for thousands of people to vote for change.

Even before we had a pandemic, many areas struggled to recruit enough poll workers, leading to long lines and closed voting locations. This is particularly true in communities with high percentages of people of color, and is one of the many deterring factors against truly representative election results. Since poll workers often tend to be senior citizens, who are particularly vulnerable to infection, election officials are predicting a recruitment crisis this year.

Democratic voters are more likely to be negatively impacted by understaffed polling locations – so, we desperately need poll workers to defeat Donald Trump. Read the qualifications for each state’s sign-up process!

Poll workers ensure elections run smoothly and democratically (as best they can, in the face of GOP voter suppression laws). They are a vital part of our election system and upholding voter rights.

It’s time to think hard about whether it makes sense for you to sign up. If you or someone you interact with is considered especially vulnerable to the pandemic, this may not be the right choice for you. In fact, we suggest you NOT do it.

But if you and your pod are not at-risk, democracy would really love your help to stay alive. Because the reality is: we may not have a democracy after another four years of Trump and McConnell.

Read over your state’s rules for becoming a poll worker, and sign up today!
