Anyone who is interested in serving the community and playing an active role in the democratic process should consider serving as a poll worker.
The Nash County Board of Elections is in the process recruiting people who are willing to serve as poll workers, and the Edgecombe County Elections Director said his office always is looking for new names to add to its list of poll workers.
Serving as a poll worker is a great way to assist in the elections process while making some money, too. It’s also a great way to meet new people and to learn more about how elections work, which is valuable knowledge for any citizen to have.
Poll workers must go through training, but they are paid for their work. They fulfill a variety of important responsibilities and duties on Election Day. People who serve as poll workers play an important role in the elections process. They assist voters and help keep Election Day moving smoothly. Therefore, it’s important for county board of elections offices to have plenty of competent, qualified individuals who are willing to serve. Elections officials depend on community members who are willing to perform those duties to help democracy work.
If you are in a position to go through training and to serve on Election Day, consider doing so. Assisting with elections is a great gift to give your community. It’s also a good way to see the inner-workings of the elections process.
