Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth Leigh M. Chapman is encouraging eligible Pennsylvanians to serve as poll workers for the November 8th election.
“It takes thousands of poll workers staffing the more than 9,000 voting locations to make safe and secure elections happen in the commonwealth,” Chapman said. “Poll workers are your friends, family members and neighbors, and they come from all walks of life to make democracy a reality.”
“Elections in the commonwealth would be impossible without the thousands of selfless poll workers whose work enables their neighbors to exercise their constitutional right to vote,” Chapman said. “I urge any eligible Pennsylvanian who wants to get involved in their community to become a poll worker.”
Benefits of becoming a poll worker include:
- being paid for trainings and for Election Day work,
- learning about elections in Pennsylvania,
- gaining valuable work experience,
- helping your community, and
- making new friends.
If you are interested in becoming a poll worker, fill out the Department of State’s Poll Worker Interest Form at paebrprod.powerappsportals.us/EBR/DOS/Votes-PA-County/. After you submit the form, your county’s election office will contact you.
