If you appreciate the importance of elections, one of the most impactful ways you can contribute is to work at the polls. Finding qualified people to work the polls can be a significant challenge, but being an election inspector (poll worker) is an important job.
Efficient, knowledgeable election inspectors (poll workers) can increase voter turnout: If lines are long at the polls, people may get discouraged and leave.
Who can be an election inspector (poll worker)? You can!
Election Inspectors (poll workers) are paid for their work, and employers are required to grant election inspectors (poll workers) unpaid time off from their regular jobs for election days.
In the Village of Allouez, Election Inspectors (poll workers) are allowed to work in shifts and do not have to work the entire day.
