Marta Hanson, National Program Manager, Power the Polls, joins Deepak Puri, CEO of The Democracy Labs, to emphasize the need for a nationwide effort to recruit the next generation of poll workers to ensure that elections run smoothly.  In a presidential election year, it is estimated that one million people are needed to fill these paid positions at the local level to address language needs, balance party affiliation, and provide help with technology.

Deepak and Marta talk about:

  • The importance of opportunities for non-partisan and bi-partisan civic engagement
  •  Demystifying the role of election administrators and poll workers
  • Training poll workers
  • Who is stepping up to become a poll worker
  • How poll workers are being recruited through partnerships and events
