become a poll worker

I have served as precinct inspector in two different elections, and I tell you what drives my passion for volunteering is witnessing first-hand how many not-so-bright people are running the polls.

The integrity of our elections is paramount in preserving democracy--so please, one precinct at a time, can we get some competent people up in here?

Not to mention, voter turnout already sucks in America, and I think it would be more encouraging for pessimistic or first-time voters to come back to the polls later if precincts ran smoothly and pleasantly, rather than confused and ill-managed.

To volunteer as a poll worker or precinct inspector, contact your secretary of state or county clerk's office.
