Poll workers sought for Nov. 3 general election

Aug 31, 2020 2:15 pm
Nick Reisman is reporting for State of Politics the New York Board of Elections August 31, announced a statewide effort to recruit poll workers for the November general election as a result of a shortage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The push comes one day before National Poll Worker Recruitment Day, a day set aside to address the shortage ahead of early voting and the November 3 vote. Poll workers tend to be older people, a demographic considered more vulnerable to the virus. More than half of poll workers in New York are over the age of 60. This year poll workers are being tasked with facilitating social distancing, sanitizing equipment as well as assisting voters. Poll workers must be at least 17 years old and registered to vote on election day. Information on becoming a poll worker in Columbia County is available by calling 518-828-3115; in Greene County, by calling 518-719-3550. Read the full story at nystateofpolitics [dot] com.
