“Preparing for Election Day: Poll Workers”

“Dear PoPville,

I would like to ask the PoPville community to help get the word out to recruit more DC residents, including young people 16 years and older, to sign up as DC poll workers. It’s a great way to be a part of this historic election and earn about $750 dollars for attending 1 training and 5 short early voting shifts as well as full shift on voting day. Masks, social distancing and other protocols are strictly followed throughout for safety.

In the District, there will be ballot drop boxes around town, but also a full week of early voting with lots of polling places to make sure everyone will be able to vote. Poll workers can request assignment to their most convenient polling places.

It’s a great opportunity for High School students or other young people who are learning at home this Fall. I’m so pleased to see so many folks stepping up so that vulnerable poll workers can stay safety at home this year, and so we can all have our votes counted safety and quickly.

It’s quick and easy to sign up here.

After signing up, the Board of Elections will call you and schedule your attendance at a 4 hour training session at DC Board of Elections (located near Nat’s Stadium) The training session goes by quickly. I attended my training yesterday and it was fun and easy.

Each poll worker is asked to work 5 shifts (each shift 6 hours long) during the early voting week Oct 27 – Nov 2, and on Election Day Nov 3

This is an exciting year, and what better way to celebrate our strengths as a nation than by becoming part of our orderly, accurate, transparent public election!”
