The U.S. Election Assistance Commission has designated January 25, 2022 as:
National Poll Worker Recruitment Day is a national awareness day established to encourage people to help America vote by serving as poll workers.
By encouraging more people to become poll workers in their communities, National Poll Worker Recruitment Day aims to address the critical shortage of poll workers, strengthen our democracy, inspire greater civic engagement and volunteerism, and help ensure free and fair elections in November and beyond.
Poll workers are critical to the success of an election. Having an adequate number of poll workers to staff polling places on and before Election Day can ensure voters receive the assistance they need at the polls and can help provide a positive and smooth voting experience for all. By signing up to be a poll worker, you can Help America Vote.
Think back to Virginia’s election for Governor last Fall. There was an unprecedented amount of scrutiny for that election due to the significant participation by Virginians serving as poll workers.
Each state recruits poll workers differently. Typically, signing up to be a poll worker is done with your local election office. In some places, this is a county election office, but it may also be a registrar or clerk at the county or local level.
